Classification: Endangered Missing


Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Silas Sessions lived with his mother in a house on Wolf Street.
He was often seen walking around Reed and Meeting Street, sometimes near Simons Street.
On the day he went missing, Sessions told his mother he was going across the street to buy cigarettes, and ended up at Charleston Memorial Hospital. It's unknown why he was admitted to the hospital; he may have been severely dehydrated or intoxicated.

Sessions suffered from mental problems and was a heavy drinker. He was taken to a local hospital after he fell on the pavement while returning home from a gasoline station. After being released, Sessions was seen leaving the hospital and approaching a cab. As he reached the taxi, he got into an argument with the driver who later refused to take him anywhere. A police officer was called to help him get home, but Sessions refused the ride, and then walked away. He was reported missing on July 11, 1999.
