Father and son vanished in North Carolina have been found in Georgia, Lincoln County cops say:
“A relative is en route to Georgia to pick them up,” officials said.
The two were last seen in Denver around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, when Adrian Paul Vancleave picked up his son at Denver Christian Academy on N.C. 16, deputies said in a release.
The school is about a 7-mile round trip from the family’s home in Denver, which is about 26 miles northwest of uptown Charlotte.
Investigators suspect their disappearance may have something to do with Adrian Paul Vancleave’s cognitive impairment, officials said.
“They were to meet the other parent around 5:00 p.m. but didn’t show up,” officials said. “The wife reported her husband has been diagnosed with a cognitive impairment and has gone missing before but never with his son.”
The two were traveling in a dark blue 2008 Acura, with N.C. plate FJM- 9863, officials said.
