Former suspect missing, sought by family

Staff writer

A Walton man who was arrested last August in a Peabody crawl space after fleeing an accident involving a car reported as stolen, is missing.

The family of Michael L. Aycock, 42, has enlisted the help of Peabody police in searching for his whereabouts.

He was last seen May 30, days after he was released from county jail after completing a 30-day sentence.

A poster with two pictures of Aycock has been distributed throughout the Peabody and Walton area.

He is described as 5-foot-10, weighing 170 pounds and having black/brown hair and a grayish beard. He was last seen May 30 getting out of a white Cadillac Escalade near Walton. He left a resident’s home to meet someone at a condemned house in Walton and has not been seen or heard from since.

Aycock has a barbed wire tattoo that says “hotshot” on his shoulder and a skull-like tattoo on one of his forearms.

He does not have much control of his left arm because of an injury in a car accident. He also is without his medication.

“Michael’s family is very concerned about his welfare and just want him home,” the poster reads.

Anyone with information regarding Aycock’s disappearance or knowing his whereabouts is being asked to contact Peabody police at (620) 983-2111.
