BOONE, NC (WJHL) – Police in Boone, North Carolina say it’s been two months since a college student disappeared.

Boone Police began looking for James “Martin” Roberts April 21st. They say he goes by Martin.

He was last seen near the Appalachian State University Campus.

Police said he left a letter in his room saying he wanted to get away from everything, but there was no indication he wanted to hurt himself.

Detectives said they have looked everywhere they believe Roberts could have went.

Boone Police Chief Dana Crawford said, “We have looked for signs of life such as financial transactions, social media use, and an extensive list of other investigative steps. We have also focused attention on the fact that he could be deceased. We have searched area lakes and many acres of wooded areas around where Martin lived and in areas that he was known to have visited by Martin. After two months we still do not have any positive indicators as to his whereabouts.”

The family has even searched Ocean Isle Beach on the North Carolina coast because Roberts loves to go there.

A $1,000 dollar reward is being offered to help find Roberts.
