STATESVILLE (WSIC) – A missing Statesville sex offender has been located in Texas.
The Statesville Police Department says it received a call from the Canton Police Department around 11:00 Tuesday morning indicating that Terry Frank Adcock had been located and taken into custody. He will be extradited back to North Carolina on an outstanding probation warrant.
According to Police, Adcock checked himself out of Aurora Assisted Living Saturday morning. He called the facility that evening to indicate he would return soon, but investigators say he never did. A Silver Alert was issued as part of the search. Police say Adcock has Parkinson’s disease.
North Carolina Sex Offender Registry records indicate Adcock was recently released from prison after serving time for attempted first degree rape with a child under 13 years of age.
