— Fayetteville Police are still trying to locate a 70-year-old man who walked away from his rest home five days ago.

Friends say James Boykin is mentally handicapped and an insulin-dependent diabetic. Family members say his condition will rapidly deteriorate without his medication.

Boykin left the Elderlodge Rest Home Monday and has not been seen since. Anyone who thinks he might have seen Boykin, is urged to call Fayetteville Police.
