Authorities are searching for a missing West Virginia man who has been missing since last Wednesday.
Earnest Edward Francis, 32, was last seen around 9:00 p.m. in New Martinsville, West Virginia.
A search turned up Earnest’s car which was found on Hydro Drive with his cellphone, house keys, wallet and belt in the car.
“We don’t know if he left with somebody, if he’s visiting somebody and just didn’t tell anybody. There are some suspicions that were raised to me because his cell phone was in the vehicle, his wallet was in the vehicle. A necklace that he wore was in the vehicle. And it’s just not normal to me that somebody goes away and leaves that stuff in their vehicle” said New Martinsville Police Sgt. Dave Byers.
Earnest father said that the last time he saw Earnest he was on his way to work, but no one has seen Earnest since he borrowed his brother’s Geo Tracker on Wednesday. He also said that Earnest would never leave without telling his children.
Earnest is 5’10”, 190 pounds with red hair and blue eyes, and three piercings in his left ear as well as several tattoos.
