Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Craig Swain is from Tyrrell County but was last seen in Washington County at a SuperBowl Party. Investigators have retraced his steps with canine teams, dive teams, and from the air. They have been able to figure out he was visiting an uncle off Jones White Road in Washington County. From there they tracked him to a store, then a party at another home on Jones White Road. From there, another party goer reported Swain hit a car, had a verbal altercation with the person whose car he hit, and left. Investigators say the person who's car Swain allegedly hit followed him, stopping him twice along the road. 911 was called, and a deputy started following the truck Swain reportedly had been driving. A chase started at 70 miles an hour around curvy backroads- ending with a crash into a mailbox on Reek Road. Whoever was driving that truck fled on foot. Days later, deputies arrived at the address of Swain's parents to deliver a citation for the hit and run - it was then they learned he had never returned home from the SuperBowl party. The last place deputies can positively say Swain was seen was at the party. Deputies say there may be foul play involved, and his family says Swain has never done anything like this before.
