Sheriff’s office looking for missing man

The Rowan County Sheriff’s office is looking for a 20-year-old Salisbury man who was reported missing last week.

Elisha Maurice Walker is a black male with a light brown skin complexion. He is 5’8″ and 120 pounds. His birthday is Sept. 26, 1994. He is reported to live an alternative lifestyle of a non-heterosexual male.

Walker owns a silver 2000 Pontiac Sunfire with the N.C. license plate, “BAJ9758.”

The plate is still valid, but may have been lost. Elisha was using a homemade piece of paper to display the license plate number.

While there are no signs of foul play, Walker’s mother said he hasn’t been in contact with any friends or family or posted to Facebook since Oct. 23, which is uncharacteristic of him.

A Salisbury police officer ran the tag for the Pontiac Sunfire on Oct. 30 after spotting the car using the paper tag traveling on Highway 150 out of the city limits.  When his National Crime Information Center inquiry came back clean, the officer had no probable cause to stop the car.

Walker has been know to travel to the Durham and Camp Lejune areas, but his location is unknown at this time.

Anyone with information as to the location of Elisha Maurice Walker should contact Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Staff Sergeant Investigator Jason Owens at 704-216-8683 or their local law enforcement agency.  Walker and his vehicle are both entered into the National Crime Information Center system.
