cameron-mcglothanALABAMA — The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is trying to locate a young man who has been missing for over one week.


Cameron McGlothan, 19, was last seen by his mother at approximately 10PM, March 23, 2013 at their Highland Lakes home. He left the house later on that night. Family filed a missing persons report two days later when he failed to return home.

Authorities think McGlothan left his house by choice and believe a friend picked him up. Although unsure, they believe he might have been picked up in a red SUV or truck.

His family is becoming worried because he does not have a history of leaving without contacting anybody and it’s highly unusual for him to be gone this long.

SCSO do not have any information that would indicate the young man is in danger however, SCSO Facebook page had left a status update earlier today which states the following;

Yesterday, March 12, 2013 Sheriff’s Office investigators received notification from Talladega County Sheriff’s Office they had discovered a deceased male along the side of a county road. Sheriff’s Office investigators are working with Talladega County authorities to determine if the male they located is possibly Cameron McGlothan.
Until official identification is made on the body found in Talladega County, Investigators continue to follow all leads in the missing person case of Cameron McGlothan.
