Search for missing Statesville man continues, family planning vigil

- It has been nearly three weeks since a 54-year-old Statesville man went missing. His family is now planning a prayer vigil and asking the public for any information on his disappearance.

Marty Teague is a beloved father and grandfather, but he hasn't been seen or heard from in three weeks. He was last seen around noon on July 24 at his apartment off Simonton Road in Statesville.

Investigators found his cell phone, cash and medication inside his home, but Marty and his 1994 Jeep Cherokee were gone.

His daughter is still holding out hope that someone will come forward with valuable information.

"I want my dad home. He has four grand kids that are worried. They want to see their grandfather and I don't know what to tell them. Those are questions I don't want to answer," said his daughter, Kansas Bonanno.

Statesville Police also have questions they want answered. A search near Marty's home over the weekend didn't turn up any clues. His bank account hasn't been touched since his disappearance and he's also never left home without talking to family first.

"Me and my sister or his friend Brian would talk to him every single day. One of us would talk to him. I hate to say it, but I feel like something is really wrong," said Bonanno.

A prayer vigil for Marty Teague is planned for Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Conover.

Anyone with information about his disappearance should call Statesville Police at 704-878-3406.
