Bossier City man goes missing after taking a cab to a house in Shreveport
Detectives found the residence to be vacant when they tried to locate him there
BOSSIER CITY/SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A Bossier City man who recently got out of a hospital disappeared sometime after taking a cab ride to Shreveport.
Now, police are asking for help locating 58-year-old Dwayne Curtis Young, who was reported missing by a family member.
He stands 5′8″ tall and weighs about 160 pounds.
Bossier City detectives say Young took a taxi ride July 2 from his residence on Norman Circle to an address off Hollywood Avenue in Shreveport. His family reported him as missing July 14. And after that, the detectives found the Shreveport house to be vacant when they tried to locate him there.
Family members and investigators are concerned for his well-being, a Bossier City spokeswoman said. Young’s daughter, Melody Hawkins, just wants her father to get home safely.
“We are worried about him. We don’t want anything to happen to him. He has a heart condition, so he doesn’t have his medicine, so we are worried about him,” she said.
The family plans to pass flyers around town in the hopes of finding him.
Authorities urge anyone with any information about Young to call Bossier City police at 318-741-8652.
