    Details of Disappearance

    Moses was last seen standing behind his home in the 1900 block of W.J. Duke Service Road in rural Rich Square, North Carolina on the morning of June 16, 2011. He left both his cars and his two motorcycles behind at home. He has never been heard from again. Authorities only realized Moses was missing after his house caught fire later that same day and was completely destroyed. Investigators believe the fire was accidental, caused by faulty wiring, but his family is suspicious of the timing and thinks it could be arson.

    Moses has ten siblings. He enjoys fishing and hunting and is a talented cook, and he had studied karate for many years. He is a retired truck driver and made extra money selling barbecued chicken to his neighbors. His loved ones said he kept in regular touch with them by phone and it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning. Moses is considered to be missing under suspicious circumstances and his case remains unsolved.
