DURHAM, N.C. – A search party is working in Durham to find a 71-year-old Anglican priest who’s been missing since Monday.

WTVD-TV reported that a small group of volunteers is handing out copies of a police missing person message in Durham’s Woodcroft Shopping Center. The handbills have two pictures of Kent Torrey Hickson.

“We’ve searched around his house, searched around where the car was found,” said Hickson’s son-in-law Maurice Perry. “And now, looking between the bank where he was last seen and where the car was found.”

There’s also a picture of that car, a red Hyundai Sonata, on the missing person handbill.

“As Christians, we’re the Body of Christ and we help each other out through good times and bad times,” said family friend Kevin Anselmo. “That’s why I think many people are here.”

The Saturday search included Hinkston’s Woodcroft neighborhood, the shopping center and the nearby Southpoint Mall area as well as businesses off Renaissance Parkway, including Target.
