An area man is missing and now two agencies are looking for him.
Farmington Police Lt. Chris Bullock said Seth Currington, 20, of Farmington, was last seen on Feb. 19 at 4:30 p.m. leaving his grandmother’s home on a silver mountain bike and was last heard from through a text message on the same day at 5:45 p.m.
“At this point in time we don’t suspect any foul play and we are actually working with another agency here in the state where he may possibly be,” Bullock said. “We have been in communication back and forth with them.”
Bullock said the family received a phone call that he had checked into a Quality Inn in Springfield and left his personal items behind.
“His belongings are still there. He had left them behind,” Bullock said. “We don’t know if he planned to return there or not. That is all we know at this point. That his belongings are still in the motel.”
Bullock said they didn’t know if Currington rode his bicycle to a friend’s house and then got a ride to Springfield. He stressed they aren’t sure how he got there.
“The family came to us out of concern because they hadn’t heard from him in a couple of days,” said Bullock. “He didn’t go to work and he didn’t come home, so we entered him into the MULES (Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement) system as missing and started looking for him.”
Bullock said he was on Facebook and that is how they have been able to track him so far. Also, he left his dad as an emergency contact at Quality Inn and that is how they found out he was there.
“We think he is down there and we have Greene County Sheriff’s Department watching for him,” said Bullock. “He described as a white male, 5 foot 7 and 140 pounds, with red hair and hazel eyes and was last seen wearing a hoodie and jeans.”
Anyone with any information on Currington’s whereabouts is asked to contact their local police department.
