Sheriff’s office still searching for Herring

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in a missing person’s case from 2009.

Casey Dee Herring of Ferriday was staying at the Best Western in Natchez in late October 2009 when he asked a desk clerk to call for an ambulance, saying he was experiencing trouble with his ankle.

When the ambulance arrived, however, Herring — who was 30 at the time — bolted on foot in the direction of the Natchez Visitor and Reception Center. He has been missing since.

“We never give up on an investigation,” Sheriff Chuck Mayfield said. “Any time we have a new lead or revisit an old lead that gives us direction, we will pursue it. We never officially close a case if it is not solved.”

At the time of his dissapearance, Herring was 5-foot-11-inches and weighed 140 pounds. He had brown hair and eyes, and a scar on the back of his neck.

He also had a blue-purple “KDC” tattoo on his stomach.

When he disappeared, he was wearing blue jeans, a blue T-shirt and socks but no shoes.

Anyone with information about Herring should call the ACSO at 601-442-2752. Callers may remain anonymous.
