NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WWAY) — A man who the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office sent a missing person’s alert for back in January has been found safe more than halfway across the country.

Maurice Kendall Wright, 36, was the subject of an NHSO “missing person checklist” on Jan. 4, 2021, but had been considered missing since Sept. 29, 2020.
