Dale Wheeler hasn't been seen since Nov. 12.
Morrisville Police say he got into a single-car wreck on Church Street near Weaver Forest Way that day.
Nobody knows where Dale Wheeler is. The @Morrisville_NC man was involved in a single car crash nearly two weeks ago and he hasn’t been heard from since.— Josh Chapin (@JoshChapinABC11) November 26, 2021
His family is coming down from Columbus tomorrow for another search #abc11 pic.twitter.com/68hVjRzxBr
"We are all just completely dumbfounded," said Denise Spinelli, who met Dale playing tennis.
She said they usually play twice a week in Durham.
After that Friday, she texted him and never heard back. He didn't show up for another tennis match with a different group, so she reached out to his relatives and filed a missing person's report.
"All we know is that he had an accident, and what we surmised is that he walked away from the scene and he was somewhere nearby," Spinelli said. "He could've just walked off into the woods, anything is possible, there's some dense areas there."
She helped lead a community search last week and they're hopeful to find more again Friday.
"He was just a good guy," Denise said. "He had the same routine. We're all just really disheartened and upset and baffled. We're trying to piece it all together."
