KANNAPOLIS — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing 19-year-old with a mental disorder.
Bryan Alexander Parker was last seen at his home in the 400 block of South Ridge Avenue around 5 p.m. Thursday, the Kannapolis Police Department said in a news release. He was reported missing Friday.
Parker came home from school Thursday, had a discussion with his sister and left to watch a basketball game at a friend’s house on Buick Avenue. Shortly after arriving at the friend’s house, he left and said he was going to a church on Bethpage Road to eat. He did not make it home Thursday night or show up at A.L.
