>> On October 2, 2013 at approximately 1:15 p.m., detectives with the Charleston Police Department went to an apartment on 83rd Street in Marmet. They were investigating the disappearance of Kareem Hunter, a 28 year old man from Charleston, who was last seen September 23.
>> Evidence at the apartment led detectives to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office and seek a search warrant.
>> Detectives also learned that on the night Mr. Hunter went missing a disturbance was reported to Metro 911 in the area of the apartment in Marmet. A potential link between the two incidents is being explored.
>> Currently the case is being worked jointly by the Charleston Police Department and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.
