Troopers were called just before 2 a.m. Friday to a wreck at W. Buffalo Street and Hwy 22/42 near Bennett, NC just inside the Randolph County line.
The Patrol said a vehicle headed north apparently crossed the center line, hit a NC DOT warning sign, ran off a bridge, and struck a wall. The vehicle overturned, partially in a creek.
Investigators said the driver was 24-year-old Jesse Lewis Maness, who was last seen leaving a Siler City restaurant around 2 a.m. October 13.
An autopsy was planned.
