Haralson County officials are searching for Nathan Barfield after he has been reported missing a second time.
Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd said that Barfield had been located in Alabama on Monday and spoke to police there, indicating that he was fine and was going to return home. Additionally, the Polk County Police Department had posted in their Facebook that he had been found, and asked for the public to respect the family's privacy.
However, Barfield has gone missing again according to Dodd.
"He went home it seems, loaded up all of his belongings and left again," Dodd said.
Barfield, a 33-year-old white male, is reported by Dodd and Haralson County officials on to have left his vehicle Highway 27 at Mormon Church Road near the unoccupied Terry's Market. He was last seen wearing a "unknown color shirt and blue jeans" according to a Haralson County 911 post on Facebook.
He "was last seen this morning by a witness between 5:30 a.m. (to) 6:00 a.m. climbing over the guard rail near the intersection and entering the woods," Haralson County's post added.
Officials said a search began today for Barfield utilizing Haralson County Sheriff's and Fire personnel, and will resume in the morning.
Barfield was previously reported missing on Sunday after failing to return home Saturday afternoon after he was alleged to have planned to travel to Cartersville to purchase a piece of exercise equipment.
Anyone with information about Barfield's whereabouts are asked to contact 911, the Polk County Police Department at 770-749-7331, or the Haralson County Sheriff's Office at 770-646-2011.
