Madeline Morris has been searching for her missing son for the last four years. Montgomery County Police say John James Morris, 37, went missing from Dickerson, Maryland on July 30, 2007. He was last seen near his home at the 2400 block of White’s Ferry Road standing at the end of the driveway.
At the time he vanished, John shared his residence with his boyfriend. Police say his vehicle and belongings were left behind and there has been no trace of him since. In a press release, Montgomery County Police say, “Extensive investigative techniques have been used during this multi-year investigation to try to gain information about what may have happened to Morris. No evidence has been developed to confirm whether or not Morris remains alive. The family believes that he would not have stayed away this long without making contact with his family. His family also believes that he would not intentionally have left and abandoned his dog. At this stage of the investigation, foul play is suspected.”
Madeline says, "If you have any idea of what happened to John, please be a human being with a conscience and come forward. The truth will set you free. What comes around goes around, if not here, but at your final judgment day. Only you can make things right by coming forward and beg God's forgiveness.”
John has a tattoo of a scorpion on his left shoulder and a snake on his right forearm. According to the website, he has a scar on his right calf, and his left ear is pierced.
A $1,000 reward is being offered for answers in this case. If you have any information, please contact Montgomery County Police at (240) 773-6239
