On Wednesday afternoon, Sheriff Kimbrough released the following statement:

First of all, I want to thank the community for the outpouring of support, and especially the Winston-Salem Police Department, for their support during this time. Our hope is the same hope as of any other family – that our loved one is safely located and returned home.

I want to especially thank the Winston-Salem Police Department for their professionalism in this investigation and for the resources they are committing to it. While Diamond is a relative of mine, the Sheriff’s Office will treat this like we do every other investigation where we are not the lead agency – we will offer resources and support. We are not the investigating agency and we will not take over as that is not our role.

Thank you again to our community members and to the members of the media for your participation in ensuring the safe return of Diamond. If anyone has any information, please contact WSPD immediately at 336-773-7700.
