According to a sheriff’s department statement, Cook’s mother last saw her son around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday after he stopped by her home on the way to work. Cook has not returned to his home and did not show up for work on Thursday.

“They [deputies] have been out looking today are still out right now going to another residence trying to find somebody that might know the whereabouts of him,” Reagan said.
