Evidence suggests NC man’s disappearance is suspicious, deputies say

Benny Daniels

NEWTON, N.C. (WBTV) — Deputies in Catawba county are searching for a 78-year-old man who is missing.

Benny Daniels was last seen Saturday night. Deputies said there is evidence of a break-in — as well as other evidence inside the home — that points to something suspicious.

Two people renting from Daniels, Tabitha Harrison and Thomas Ball, who lived below him are being sought as persons of interest.

Daniels’ son said he thought he saw a third person this weekend on the property, who he described as a man with a teardrop tattoo coming down from an eye.

Officials said a search of the area, including wooded areas, turned up nothing.

The State Bureau of Investigation is assisting deputies with the investigation.
