SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Summerville Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding a man who went missing nearly a week ago.

Larry Jackson, 23, was last seen on Sunday, April 28 in the Brownsville Community.

Jackson's mother Rozena Bell said, "I think somebody killed him, that's what I believe."

Police say Jackson left a residence at 210 Boone Street around 3 p.m., and has not been seen by family or friends since. Attempts to make telephone contact with the missing man have failed. Family members say it is unlike Jackson to disappear.

"That's how I knew something was not right because he didn't call me. He didn't respond to nothing I was saying," said Larrika Cooper, Jackson's sister, "I commented on his Facebook page and he still didn't call me. Sunday night passed, Monday morning came and he still didn't call me."

Family of Jackson all have their own opinions on what may have happened to him. His mother believes she knows who's to blame.

Bell said, "The people he hang around and the things that he was doing."

"This the first time without him being in trouble with the law away from us," said Cooper.

Jackson is no stranger to crime. A state background check shows he's been arrested more than 10 times since 2006. He was last charged with kidnapping in January of this year.

Jackson's family has one message for him.

"Just come home. Whatever's going on, we could fix it. If somebody's hurting you, if somebody knows something, call," said Cooper.

If you have any information on Jackson's whereabouts, call the Summerville Police Department at 843-851-4100.
