Details of Disappearance

Teague was last seen at his residence at Mallard Creek Apartments on Simonton Road in Statesville, North Carolina at 12:00 p.m. on July 24, 2018. He left his phone, money and medication behind in his apartment and has never been heard from again.

Teague's family described him as a simple man who kept to a routine, regularly attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and was usually in bed at the same time each night. He would call his loved ones at least once a day. They began to suspect something was wrong when they hadn't heard from him by evening on the day of his disappearance. Prior to his disappearance, he had acted normally and seemed happy, and had gone on his first date in six years.

His vehicle, a dark green 1994 Jeep Cherokee with tan trim and the North Carolina license plate number FBV-6537, disappeared with him; a photo of it is posted with this case summary. On August 30, 2019, more than a year after Teague's disappearance, it was found on an abandoned piece of property on Sain Road off Highway 64, about a ten-minute drive from Teague's apartment.

Since Teague's disappearance, his bank account hasn't been touched. He's considered missing under suspicious circumstances. His case remains unsolved.
