Kent has Downs Syndrome and requires medication. He is physically 41 years old but has the mental capacity of a 9-year-old.
Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. Jacobs resided with his mother in the Colonial Heights area of Hope Mills, North Carolina. He was last seen at approximately 5:00 p.m. on March 10, 2002. Jacobs planned to walk to his childhood neighborhood near McDonald Road and Interstate 95, which is two blocks from his residence. The walk was part of his normal routine. He was carrying approximately $200 when he departed from his home. Jacobs never returned for his 6:00 p.m. curfew and has not been heard from again. Police say he was last seen getting into a small car where Brooklyn Circle meets an access road next to US 301. Authorities announced that Jacobs' case was being investigated as a presumed homicide in August 2002, five months after he disappeared. Officials stated that they received a credible tip from an informant who identified Jacobs' alleged assailant(s) and also revealed the location of his remains. His body has not been recovered and no arrests have been made in connection with his disappearance. Authorities said that it appeared Jacobs was the victim of a planned attack and may have been robbed prior to his murder. Jacobs' favorite meals are steak and tacos. He walked everywhere, as he could not drive a car or ride a bike. Jacobs was fiercely independent, even refusing rides so he could walk. He is a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. His case remains unsolved.
