SALISBURY — Police are looking for a 62-year-old Salisbury man who they say hasn’t been seen since last week. The man doesn’t have any cognitive impairment or dementia, according to his family.

Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said they hope the public can help them locate Marvin Edward Pruitt, who has not been seen by family since Nov. 3 and has not reported for work.

“He has not shown up or called in,” Lingle said.

Pruitt is 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighs 187 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He has a visible scar on his shoulder and missing his front teeth. His family said he suffers from anxiety, but has no known health issues, but his family is concerned.

His daughter saw him last when he visited her at her apartment, but she has not heard from or seen him since that time, Lingle said.

He’s usually working in his garden and outdoors. His neighbors have also not seen Pruitt, she said.

Anyone who believes they’ve seen Marvin Pruitt is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
