Akopov Vyacheslav

Missing since: 9/12/98
Missing from: Bladenboro, NC
Classification: Endangered Missing
Age at disappearance: 42
Birth Date: 07/26/46
Sex: Male.
Race: White
Hair Color: Graying black hair
Height: 5’8″
Weight: 150 – 170 lbs.

Circumstances:
Akopov resided in a trailer in Bladensburg, North Carolina in September 1998. He rented the trailer from Wanda Phipps, who describes him as a model tenant. He worked at Harriet and Henderson in Clarkton, North Carolina and sent money to his wife and two children in Uzbekistan. He often let other Uzbekistanian immigrants stay in his home until they were able to find jobs.

Two such people were staying with him at the time of his disappearance. On September 12, Phipps saw him in Elizabethtown, North Carolina. He was accompanied by his two roommates and was trying to find his insurance agent. Phipps helped him get his car and insurance. She saw him get into his vehicle, a light-colored four-door 1987 Plymouth Caravelle, with his two friends afterwards. He has never been heard from again.

Phipps reported him as a missing person after she found out he had not shown up at work; he was a very reliable employee and it is uncharacteristic of him to miss work without giving notice. After his disappearance she went to his trailer and saw that it was in a messy and cluttered condition and all of Apokov’s clothes and personal belongings were still there. The refrigerator was dented and some pictures had been removed from their frames. Phipps stated it was uncharacteristic of him to leave his trailer a mess, as he usually kept it very neat.

His Uzbek/English dictionary, which he always carried with him to assist with language acquisition, was missing. Phipps stated she disliked the two men who were living with Akopov when he disappeared. They were younger than his previous roommates and unlike the other immigrants he had lived with, these men were unable to find employment in the area. Phipps stated both men were in their thirties, between 5’9 and 5’11 tall, and had stocky builds. They have not been publicly identified. Both of them disappeared at the same time Akopov did. Akopov was carrying between $500 and $600 in cash at the time of his disappearance, and two paychecks which have never been cashed. He was devoted to his family and friends in Uzbekistan and he wrote to them regularly, but they have not heard from him since his disappearance. Skeletal remains of a man approximately Akopov’s age, and wearing boots similar to his own, were found near Wilmington, North Carolina after his disappearance, but the remains have not been identified.
There has been no sign of Akopov, his vehicle or his two roommates since 1998

Vehicle last seen in if any: Light-colored four-door 1987 Plymouth Caravelle

Work or Hobbies: He worked at Harriet and Henderson in Clarkton, North Carolina

Additional comments: He speaks limited English,native of Uzbekistan

Details of Disappearance

Jacobs planned to walk to his childhood neighborhood near McDonald Road and Interstate 95, which is two blocks from his residence. The walk was part of his normal routine. He was carrying approximately $200 when he departed from his home. Jacobs never returned for his 6:00 PM curfew and has not been heard from again. Police say he was last seen getting into a small car where Brooklyn Circle meets an access road next to US 301.

Authorities announced that Jacobs’ case was being investigated as a presumed homicide in August 2002, five months after he disappeared. Officials stated that they received a credible tip from an informant who identified Jacobs’ alleged assailant(s) and also revealed the location of his remains. His body has not been recovered and no arrests have been made in connection with his disappearance. Authorities said that it appeared Jacobs was the victim of a planned attack and may have been robbed prior to his murder.
Jacobs’ favorite meals are steak and tacos. He walked everywhere, as he could not drive a car or ride a bike. Jacobs was fiercely independent, even refusing rides so he could walk.

He is a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina.

Still searching for clues to help find Kyle Brackett
Posted: Apr 12, 2010
PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Volunteers with the Cue Center for Missing Persons and law enforcement officers are trying to determine if they should search another area for clues into the disappearance of Kyle Brackett.

Over the weekend Searchers and officers combed through some woods in Surf City, but they didn’t find anything.

“We did complete the search,” said Monica Caison with the Cue Center for Missing Persons. “Pretty much everything we had on our agenda we completed. We feel very confident he is not in that particular area we searched.”

Kyle Brackett, 18, has been missing for 7 months. The teen is from Carolina Beach, but was last seen in Surf City where he was visiting family.

Although the search over the weekend came up empty, volunteers aren’t going to give up.

“Right now we’re going to pick up the awareness campaign for him – getting his poster out,” said Caison. “[We're] trying to get him registered with other organizations, so he becomes very high profiled on the internet.”

If you know something about Kyle Brackett’s disappearance, please call The Cue Center for Missing Persons (910) 343-1131 or the Carolina Beach Police Department (910) 458-2540‎.

Jennifer Patterson

Missing since: 06/23/91
Missing from: Spring Lake, North Carolina
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: 01/13/84
Age at disappearance: 7
Height:4’5
Weight:59 pounds
White female
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown
Marks, Scars: Patterson has a freckle at the end of her nose. She has small scars on her right temple and between her eyes.
Clothing: She was last seen wearing a white bathing suit.

Details of Disappearance
Jennifer was reportedly last seen leaving her family’s residence at Holly Hills Mobile Home Park in the 1400 block of north Fort Bragg Boulevard in Spring Lake, North Carolina on June 23, 1991. Jennifer planned to walk to a neighbor’s home at approximately 1:15 p.m. She never arrived at her destination and has not been heard from again. She was reported missing at 6:00 p.m. Extensive searches of the area did not produce any evidence as to her whereabouts.

At the time of her disapperance, Jennifer’s parents were divorced but were still living together. Her father, Alan Patterson, failed a polygraph exam following his daughter’s 1991 disappearance. He was viewed as a possible suspect by law enforcement at the time, and police said there was no evidence that Jennifer ever left her home that day. Alan was involved in a custody dispute over Jennifer at the time of her disappearance, and he was scheduled to take a paternity test. When interviewed by police, he initially said Jennifer had disappeared as a result of the custody dispute and was alive and being cared for. He later maintained that he was speaking hypothetically and did not intend for his statements to be taken as fact. Jennifer’s parents separated and moved away to different states a few months after she disappeared. Her father maintains his innocence in her disappearance, stating he was at work when she went missing.

Authorities now call Alan their prime suspect. They stated that forensic technology that was unavailable in 1991 may help solve Jennifer’s case. They suspect she is deceased. Jennifer’s disappearance remains unsolved. The mobile home park where she lived has now been abandoned.

Spring Lake Police Open Unsolved Crimes

Mar 9, 1998

SPRING LAKE — Investigators in Spring Lake are hoping new technology will help them solve some old cases, including the disappearance of a 7-year-old girl back in 1991.

Despite an intensive search, the likes of which Spring Lake has never seen before or since, young Jennifer Patterson was never found. But police believe the department’s newly created violent crimes and narcotics unit can shed new light on the crime.

The girl’s disappearance brought the community out in force in an effort to find her. Jennifer was wearing a white bathing suit when she was last seen in her back yard in June, 1991. Fort Bragg soldiers joined forces with local police and hundreds of volunteers. They searched for several days, but had no luck.

Detective Tony Hart of Spring Lake Police says he hopes new information will come to light.

Hart says he believes the little girl is dead. He says he hopes that, after all this time, anyone with information won’t hesitate to come forward.

Allen Patterson, the girl’s father, was originally a suspect, and he failed a lie detector test. Police say they plan to interview him again in the near future.

Police say technology has improved so much that it pays to take another look at older, unsolved cases now.

Jamie Fraley

Filed under General

Jamie Michelle Fraley

Missing Since: 04/08/08
Missing from: Gastonia, North Carolina
Classification: Missing
Date Of Birth: 03/05/86
Age at disappearance: 22
Height: 4’8″-4’9″
Weight: 90-95 lbs.
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Brown/Blue
Race: White
Gender: Female
Distinguishing Characteristics: Light complexion.
Tattoo of the name Ricky on right ankle
Clothing: Possibly wearing large white T-shirt over blue jeans.

Details of Disappearance

Fraley was last known to be at or near her apartment at the Copperfield apartment complex in the 1800 block of Lowell Bethesda Road, in Gastonia, North Carolina on April 8, 2008. She was suffering from stomach flu and had been to the hospital twice the previous day. She called her mother at around midnight and said she was sick again. At 1:30 a.m., Fraley called a friend and said someone was going to pick her up and take her back to the hospital. She has never been heard from again.

Fraley left her purse, wallet, keys and identification behind at her residence. Two days after her disappearance, a utilities worker found her cellular phone at the intersection of south New Hope Road and east Hudson Boulevard, three miles from her home. Several phone calls were made from the phone at 4:30 a.m. the day she disappeared. None of the calls turned out to be connected to her disappearance; they were apparently from the phone’s list of recent calls dialed. The phone also received a call early on the morning of April 9. Police stated by the time they took possession of the phone, it had been handled by too many people to be valuable as evidence.

Fraley was engaged to be married at the time of her disappearance. Her fiance’s father, Ricky Dale Simonds Sr., is considered a person of interest in her case. He did maintenance work at the Copperfield complex, he lived two apartments over from her and was one of the last people to see her; he gave her a ride to the hospital emergency room a few hours before her disappearance, and another neighbor drove her home. Simonds refused to take a lie detector test in Fraley’s case. He has a criminal record for fraud, larceny and drug charges, and he served time in prison in the 1980s for manslaughter in connection with the strangulation death of an ex-girlfriend.

In June 2008, another ex-girlfriend found Simonds’s body in the trunk of her car. The woman had filed a restraining order against him after her car was broken into and her purse and keys were stolen. When she found the body, her keys were in Simonds’s pocket and her purse was in the trunk with him. Authorities believe he hid inside the car trunk in order to ambush his ex-girlfriend, and he got trapped there and died of heat stroke. It was only after his death that police said they suspected him of involvement in Fraley’s disappearance. There is no proof that he harmed her, however; no charges have been filed against anyone in her case due to lack of evidence.

Fraley was a part-time student at Gaston College at the time of her disappearance. Investigators don’t believe she left of her own accord, as she had no driver’s license and no transportation and it’s uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Her fiance was incarcerated at the time of her disappearance and therefore isn’t considered a suspect. Little evidence is available in her case, which remains unsolved.
