Details of Disappearance
Jeffrey Lynn Combs was reported missing to the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office on 10/23/2008. Jeffrey lived with his mother on Browns Waugh Street in North Wilkesboro and was last seen at the home. When his mother came home from work around 11 o’clock the morning of Oct. 24, her son was gone. Food was left in a hot pan on the stove and she found wet tattered clothes that belonged to her son. He had left a note that his scooter and two helmets, along with a cell phone had been stolen. “In the note he said he was gone to track it down and, ‘If I’m not back by dark, come looking for me.” After failing to locate her son, the mother contacted investigators, deputies joined in the search. A couple of days after the disappearance, law enforcement officers found the missing scooter near the river off Suncrest Orchard Road with pieces missing. They also located on of the missing helmets. His mother reported that shortly before his disappearance he had befriended some homeless people who had been camping along the Reddies River not far from their home.
