    Details of Disappearance

    Wing was last seen on February 8, 1987. He went to go visit a friend who lived at Terrace Garden Apartments in Havre de Grace, Maryland, but he never arrived there and has never been heard from again. At the time of his disappearance, he was unemployed and lived with his parents on north Stokes Street.

    Wing has a criminal record; he was arrested at least eight times between 1973 and 1983 and convicted of various charges including disorderly conduct, burglary and battery. He has an outspoken character and occasionally got into fights as a result. Just hours before his disappearance, he told his brother someone was "after him" because of a relationship he was having with a married woman. He was carrying two guns for protection.

    Wing was divorced at the time of his disappearance, unemployed, and living with his parents on north Stokes Street. He has seven siblings and also left behind a daughter. Authorities believe foul play may have been involved in his case, as it is uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning. His case remains unsolved.
