ORIGINAL STORY:

Fayette County Sheriff's Deputies are looking out for two men who were reported missing from different locations in unrelated cases.

The first is Gary Glover, 56, he was last seen around the FMRS office in Fayetteville at 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8.  Glvoer is 6-feet 2-inches tall and around 200 pounds.  He has white hair and blue eyes.  Glover is from the Page area of Fayette County, but investigators are not certain where he may be going.  According to a release from the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, Glover reportedly suffers from mild mental retardation and may appear confused and disoriented.  He was wearing blue jeans, black tennis shoes, a white hooded sweatshirt with brown stripes and a dark-colored leather trench-coat.

The other missing man is Brian Keith Adkins, 30, of Pax.  He was last seen when he left his home at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7.  Adkins was apparently walking on the railroad tracks toward Mount Hope.   Deputies said he is 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighs around 220 pounds.  Adkins was wearing black clothes.  According to the release from the Sheriff's Department, Adkins may be confused and disoriented because he reportedly had not taken his prescription medication.

Deputies do not believe that foul play is involved in the disappearance of either Adkins or Glover.  Anyone with information on either man's disappearance is asked to call the FAyette Count 911 Center at 304-574-1610.  Tips can also be submitted at the Crime Tips section of the Fayette County Sheriff's Office web site.
