Circumstances of Disappearance

Around 5:00 PM on March 10, 2002, Kent left to walk as part of his normal routine. He did not return home by his 6:00 PM curfew and has not been seen since. He was carrying approximately $200 at the time of his disappearance, and his family believes he may have been robbed. Police consider the case a homicide, and Kent has been declared legally dead. In 2010, authorities received a lead that his body may be buried off Brooklyn Circle; however, they found no sign of him when searching.
