Feb 05, 2014

The Haywood County Sheriff’s Office reports two people who were reported missing in separate incidents have been located.

Family members who had reported 38-year-old Robert Douglas Parks missing said today that he has spoken with them and is fine.  His name has been removed from missing persons.

Because of news alerts in the local media, a person recognized James Christopher Franklin at a fast-food restaurant in the Oteen area of Buncombe County last night and notified police.  Asheville police officers positively identified Mr. Franklin, and he was in good condition.  His name has also been removed from missing persons.
