The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is currently conducting an investigation into the disappearance of a man that walked away from his parents’ home on the evening of Wednesday, May 31, 2017, and has not been seen since.

Gabriel Bradley Hein is described as a W/M, 28yoa, 5’11”, approximately 200 plus lbs, brown hair with a brown beard and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, brown or tan shorts, gray colored “Croc” shoes and was in possession of a gray colored backpack.

Mr. Hein may possibly be in the need for medical care due to recent episodes of paranoia and statements made to his family that he felt that people were trying to take his life.

The Sheriff’s Office along with the assistance from other county and volunteer resources has conducted a foot search of the immediate area where he was last seen; however, all attempts to locate Mr. Hein have been unsuccessful.

Members of the public are encouraged to notify local law enforcement by calling 911 if they see Mr. Hein and avoid any effort to make contact or detain him.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with other information regarding the location of Mr. Hein to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
