Police: Body found may be missing blind man

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A body found this afternoon along S. Kerr Ave. in Wilmington fits the description of a man who went missing in the area two weeks ago.

Police say the body is a 60-year-old, blind, black man. That describes Melvin Jerome Bennett, who was last seen around 11 p.m. on February 15 at the K&D Mini Mart at 251 S. Kerr Avenue. His family has not seen or heard from him since.

The body was found just a block and a half away today. Investigators say the body is in a culvert under the road between Cox Christian Bookstore and Kerr Station Village.

Police have not yet confirmed the identity of the body, but a WPD spokesman says he assumes it is Bennett.
