A North Carolina man and his 7-year-old son disappeared Thursday morning, according to Avery County Sheriff’s Office.
Daniel Bledsoe was last seen driving his son, Wesley, to a school bus stop, the sheriff’s office posted on its Facebook page.
According to Sheriff Kevin Frye, Daniel Bledsoe did not let Wesley board the bus because it was muddy and they got back into the White 2007 Honda CRV and drove away, WFMY reported.
The sheriff’s office said Daniel Bledsoe never returned home, and when his wife called the school she was told Wesley never arrived, according to the Facebook post.

The SUV Daniel Bledsoe was driving is damaged on the front quarter panel of the driver’s side, according to the post.
