Roanoke County police said Tuesday the man who has been missing since March 18 is likely traveling on foot.
Scott Dwayne Wheeling, a 23-year-old Roanoke County man, was last seen March 18 in the area of Merriman Road and Meadowlark Road.
Detective Dan Walters said he was also seen at the Ruby Tuesday on Virginia 419 and near Tanglewood Mall on the day he went missing. Walters said police are still investigating several unconfirmed sightings since then.
He said Wheeling is not known to be traveling in any vehicle, further complicating the search. He said the department is actively searching for Wheeling, and officers have been told to watch out for anyone walking along the road.
“We have limited leads right now,” Walters said.
