Search for missing teen continues Guilford County sheriff’s deputies and other searchers didn’t find a missing teenager Thursday during a second day of combing City Lake Park.
Dorien Daymon Jackson, 18, has been missing since Jan. 10. Between 15 and 20 officers have been involved searching at City Lake Park Wednesday and Thursday, said Sheriff’s Office Maj. Tom Shepard.
On Wednesday, cadaver dogs brought to the lake detected an area where the dogs sensed indications of a body. Divers coped with water around 46 degrees. Visibility was around 6 inches, which made the search difficult and cut into the divers’ time in the water.
Jackson left his Tangle Lane home the evening of Jan. 10 to visit a friend, according to family members. Nobody has seen or heard from him since he left a friend’s home on Penny Road in Jamestown, said his mother, Betty Jackson.
She told The High Point Enterprise late Thursday afternoon that there still wasn’t updated information on her son’s whereabouts.
After Jackson’s bicycle was found near the park last weekend, sheriff’s office deputies conducted a search of the area on foot and by plane.
Investigators on Wednesday and Thursday searched the woods surrounding the lake, and divers searched a portion of the lake.
Jackson is a black male, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. Anyone with information is asked to contact sheriff’s Detective D.K. Jones at 641-5968 or 641-3690.
