MARIETTA, Ga. — Family and friends of a man missing for nearly three weeks are asking for help finding him.

Troy Brumfield told Channel 2's Tom Regan that he's deeply worried about his best friend and former business partner.

“His family (is worried). His fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma, his friends, they’re all very emotional because we haven’t had a trace on him. We haven’t heard from him,” Brumfield said.

Warren was last seen at an office building in Marietta where he was doing cleaning work. His cellphone has been turned off.


“We’ve called him, but his cellphone is off,” Brumfield said. “No one can locate his vehicle, so we’re very concerned about his whereabouts.”

Warren’s last known address was on Timber Creek Lane. His family and friends say he’s never taken off for a trip without giving someone a heads up.

“This is very uncharacteristic of him. For him not to reach out to any family members, it’s kind of weird. That’s what makes us overly concerned,” Brumfield said.

Warren’s sister drove in from South Carolina a few days ago to file a missing persons report with the Cobb County Police Department.

“I ask if anyone knows his whereabouts to please contact Cobb County police or WSB-TV,” Brumfield said.

Cobb police say they’re just beginning their investigation.
