WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Wilmington Police Department is asking for help finding a man whose family has not seen or heard from him for three weeks.
Relatives say they fear for the safety of Rafael Romero, 21. Romero did not take money or extra clothing with him when he left his home on the evening of October 18. He knows very few people in this area, and no one has seen him in recent days.
