Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking the public’s help in finding a man who has been missing from his southwest Charlotte home for nearly four weeks.
Police say Derrick Chambers was last seen on the morning of Jan. 3, leaving his home in the 10200 block of Hawkeye Drive. He was on foot, police say. There has been no reported contact with Chambers, 25, since then.
Family members say Chambers told them he was going to work at a store in Concord Mills, but he never arrived there. Chambers does not have a car and uses Charlotte Area Transportation System to get to work.
CMPD detectives say he was reported missing by his family on the evening of Jan. 7. Since then, they have checked with officials at CATS and at area hospitals. Family members have posted fliers, but there has been no break-through in the case.
Police say Chambers’ family reports he might be suffering from mental issues, and they are concerned about his well-being.
Anyone who sees Chambers or who has information in the case is asked to call 911, contact Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600, or call CMPD detectives at 704-336-7495.
