***UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE***

On October 25th 2020, Wellington Park reported to one of our Officers that Harold G. Liles had been missing from the facility since the day before. Mr. Liles was thus reported as missing and entered as a missing person through all channels

On further investigation, a passer-by did see Mr. Liles in the area of the North Main Street Bridge of Stewart's Creek. He was by hisself and he gave no reason for any concern or sign of distress. This was on the 24th during the afternoon, the day he had signed out of the facility before he was reported missing.

On October 26th 2020, Chief Strickland made contact with the Onslow County Sheriffs Office Bloodhound to attempt to establish a track in the area of Wellington Park. The attempt was not successful.

Leads involving possible sightings were followed up on by interviews over the next couple of days with no remarkable success.

On October 28 2020, Deputies of the Duplin County Sheriffs Office made contact with Invesigator Killette regarding a body that had been found by a passerby. The passerby had stated that he saw what he thought was a person floating in the water. It should be noted that this was before Daylight Savings Time. At this time, there was still daylight.

The process of recovery was started. The Duplin County Search and Rescue Team were brought in for recovery with logistical support from the Kenansville Fire Dept. and Duplin County EMS. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation was also called in for Crime Scene and Investigative assistance.

Over the next few days, Investigator Killette worked with the Duplin County Search and rescue teams to go over relevant areas of the investigation to seek out any further evidence. This included on foot searches of the area as well as an underwater camera at the location of the bridge.

The cause of death of Mr. Liles has been determined to be “Asphyxiation by Drowning”. No signs of “foul play” has been indicated in this incident.

We would like to thank every agency and person who helped us with this case. We are still seeking out any information that may help as to why Mr. Liles was in the water if it is available.

Our jobs are not easy. We see and hear some terrible things and it can be discouraging at times. On a rough day like today, one of our officers was blessed by someone buying them a meal and just a little while ago, this little angel paid us a visit and warmed our hearts.

Positive Cases of COVID-19 Continue to Increase in Duplin County

Duplin County’s total number of laboratory confirmed positive COVID-19 cases has increased to 78 residents. Of those confirmed positive cases, 27 of them have met clinical criteria to be released from isolation. Additionally, each new confirmed positive cases have been attributed to community spread (meaning the source of the infection is not known). Duplin County Health Department continues to conduct outbreak investigations, including contact tracing, to identify who else may have potentially been exposed and monitoring all trends for the county.

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has included additional symptoms that individuals might experience from COVID-19. These additional symptoms include chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell. Symptoms may appear between 2-14 days following exposure to coronavirus. Remember to seek medical attention if you experience any severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, and/or bluish lips or face. See the CDC COVID-19 webpage for additional information about symptoms and testing at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/index.html.

Additional information can be reviewed on North Carolina’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 Response’s webpage at https://www.ncdhhs.gov/divisions/public-health/covid19. A telephone line dedicated to COVID-19 questions has been established at the Health Department: 910-296-2130 ext. 8160. No medical advice or assessments will be given from this phone line.

GOVERNOR ISSUES STAY-AT-HOME ORDER EFFECTIVE MONDAY AT 5 P.M.

Governor Roy Cooper has just announced an executive order requiring most people to stay at home, beginning at 5 p.m. Monday, and continuing through April 29.

"It bans gatherings of more than 10 people and encourages everyone to stay 6 feet away from each other," Cooper said. "Those businesses that need to stay open should take social distancing precautions."

The governor said that people should stay at home except for work, food or outdoor exercise. Even in those cases, people should stay at least 6 feet away from each other at all times to help slow the spread.

“I know this order may lead to even more hardship and heartache. Although we are physically apart, we must take this step together in spirit,” Governor Cooper said.

"Our best weapon is social distancing," said N.C. Department of Health & Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen.

The Centers for Disease Control now classifies North Carolina as a widespread state, meaning that the virus has spread rapidly among people who do not know how they contracted the disease.

When asked why the order is not being enforced until 5 p.m. Monday, Cooper said, "We have spent time to make sure we get this order right. We have taken aggressive steps over the last week."

He also pointed out that delaying the enforcement of the order gives people more time to plan. "I am asking people to voluntarily take action now before the order goes into effect."

The full order is available at this link:https://files.nc.gov/governor/documents/files/EO121-Stay-at-Home-Order-3.pdf

*** Friends and Followers ***

**Prayers needed**

On March 2, 2020 one of our best friends, greatest supporters, and long time firefighters was injured due to a motorcycle crash involving an animal. Chief Eric Southerland, Warsaw Police Department, was injured while riding his motorcycle on Bennett’s Bridge Rd in Duplin County.

Eric has already been through one surgery with possibly more to come. Despite his injuries, he is in good sprits and in stable condition at Vidant Hospital in Greenville.

Chief John Blackmore and all the members of Warsaw Fire Department are holding Eric and his family close to our hearts and we send prayers for a quick recovery.

Eric has always embodied our motto and his leadership and support though-out the years, on and off the fire ground, helped mold our department into what it is today.

Please pray along with us for our friend. Please pray for a fast recovery and for complete healing.

From your family here at Warsaw Fire Department, we love you Eric. Thank you for all you have done for us and we stand ready to do anything for you and your family.

Dr. Owen Martin Jr. & Leatrice Martin 532 West College Street Warsaw North Carolina, 28398 919-817-2671 Date: 10/18/2018 Greetings Duplin County Community, The recent flooding from Hurricane Florence in our community has caused well over $1 billion in damages to thousands of homes in our community and other portions of southeastern North Carolina. My sister and I have lived in and been a part of this county for over five decades. We have never witnessed this type of destruction in our lifetime. We are faced with the holiday season rapidly approaching and many families continue to struggle to return some normalcy to their lives. God has placed on our hearts to partner with the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program and bring smiles to the faces of children in this community on Christmas morning. We are calling on local businesses in Duplin County, church communities, families and individuals to support our mission in helping less fortunate children impacted by the flood. You can support Toys for Tots by donating a new unwrapped toy at a collection site near you or by volunteering to collect toys from your employees, family and congregation members. It is by our collaborative strength of community that we will make a difference in the lives and hearts of all mankind. Schools, churches and businesses make Duplin county a great place to live. Join us in helping spread the word that “Jesus is the reason for the season” by helping children find a special gift on Christmas morning-an experience every child deserves. Included in this packet you will find information on making donations. Please complete by link: www.123formbuilder.com/form-4345451/sales-lead-form or paper form, no later than December 7th, 2018. Our mission is to reach children 0 to 12 years of age. Help us fulfill the love of Jesus Christ as we demonstrate giving to those most impacted by Hurricane Florence in Duplin County-our children. Yours in the Spirit of Christ, Dr. Owen Martin Jr. MS, DVM Leatrice Martin, MBA, CHES
