The family of a Greenwood man is frantically searching for him after they said he didn't attend class or return home from a trip to Columbia.
Greenwood County deputies said Darron Harmon traveled to a friend's house in Columbia on Sunday and was last seen leaving on Monday at 5 a.m. but has not been seen since then.
They know his debit card was also used in Newberry at the Burger King in Newberry at 6:24 a.m. Deputies said they have requested video from the restaurant to confirm if Harmon was there.
The family of the 29-year-old said he went to meet some friends at the Columbiana Mall in Columbia on Sunday night. According to the sheriff's office report, Harmon left his friend's Columbia home about 5:30 a.m. when they left for work. The friends told deputies they had been drinking in the night, but he told them he had sobered up enough to drive home.
Harmon's family said they were concerned for his safety because they said he is an insulin-dependent diabetic who did not have his medication with him. They said it is unusual for Harmon not to contact his family or friends, or not to attend his classes at Lander University.
Deputies said Harmon had a 10 a.m. class Monday but did not show up. The report said Harmon told his two friends that he was going to skip class and go home.
Deputies have requested aerial help from South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to check all possible routes from Greenwood to Columbia.
Harmon drives a navy blue 2000 GMC Sonoma S-10. It has a large dent on the passenger side door and a Lander University parking sticker on the front window, a Dynamite Karaoke sticker in the rear window and SC tag CUU 992.
Harmon is described as 5'9" tall, weighs about 300 pounds and has red hair and green eyes.
Anyone with any information about Harmon's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or 864-942-7232.
