Search continues for missing man

Posted: Updated:

Police continue to search for an Emanuel County man who disappeared more than a month ago.

Twin City police chief Johnny Lane said they are still looking for 49-year-old Tony Steele. Lane told WTOC Steele disappeared the night of Oct. 31. Lane said Steele lives with his mother in Twin City and went to bed that night. When his mother woke the next morning, he was gone.

"His mother said he has taken off before, but always carried his medications, some clothes or something with him. This time, he left with nothing but the clothes on his back," Lane said.

Lane said Steele has a brother in Vero Beach, Florida and may have possibly taken off on foot to hitchhike to Florida. The chief said the family is particularly concerned because Steele had been released from the hospital just before his disappearance and needed several medications.

Anyone with information on Steele is asked to call Twin City Police at 478.763.4140.
