— The Durham County Sheriff's Office asked the public Friday to share any information they might have about a man who's been missing for nearly a year.

Hollis Kirkland "Kirk" McAbee, 31, was last seen at his home at 2734 Saddle Drive on May 23, 2010. Investigators said his estranged wife found his car at the house, with the key still in the ignition and cash left on the console.

His mother, Cindy, said she knew something was wrong when McAbee, a father of two, missed his son's birthday party.

McAbee is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 195 pounds. He has brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with any information about McAbee's disappearance is asked to call Durham County Detective Sharon Burmahl at 919-560-0880.

Search warrants state that investigators do not believe that McAbee, who has ties to drug trade, is missing by his own choice.

Authorities once also searched for his friend and business associate, Armando Reyna-Soto, who warrants state might have gone to Mexico. A search warrant also states that McAbee's wife allegedly admitted to having an affair with a friend of her husband's who fled to Mexico after his disappearance.
