Details of Disappearance

Ayscue was last seen at his home in the 200 block of Collie Road in Castalia, North Carolina, near the Franklin County line, on July 7, 2009. He disappeared after an argument with his roommate and has never been heard from again. He was reported missing on August 28.

In October 2019, Ayscue's sister, Kimberly Hancock, was charged with the murder of her roommate and sister-in-law, Deborah Deans. Deans had disappeared in 2004 and her body was not found until 2019; it was buried in a shallow grave behind the home she'd shared with Hancock. Hancock had been charged with the manslaughter of her father in 1989, but was given a suspended sentence in that case.

Authorities haven't said whether Hancock is a suspect in her brother's disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
