The search continues for a man last seen nearly 13 years ago. Travis Lamont Lynch was last seen around 1:00am on Christmas Eve 2003.
Lynch was seen driving a white 1992 Pontiac Grand AM with NC license RZS4814 in the area of Claude Lewis Road outside of Middlesex in southern Nash County. He hasn’t been seen since that time. On December 26, 2003 his mother reported her son missing.
Lynch, who is from Wilson, is a black male, 5 foot 4, 184 pounds, with short hair. He has a birthmark on the left side of his mouth and a tattoo of the letter “T” on his right arm. He was last seen wearing a light brown t-shirt and blue jeans.
In an effort to try and solve the disappearance of the 34 year-old man, the Nash County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday a reward in the case has been increased to $10,000. A tip line has also been set up. Tips can be called in to 252-459-4121. All information will remain anonymous.
Family and friends of Travis Lynch will hold a vigil for the missing man on September 17th at the Union View Church on Old Smithfield Road in Bailey.
