Poolesville Man Missing Since 2007, Reward Offered

Morris was last confirmed seen on Monday, July 30, 2007, between 3:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. at his residence in the 24000 block of Whites Ferry Road in Poolesville, Maryland. He was reported missing to police on August 23, 2007.  It was discovered that Morris left his vehicle and belongings in the driveway of the home.

He is described as a white male, age 40, 6’1” tall, weighing 180 pounds, with graying brown hair, hazel/brown eyes, and a medium complexion. Additional identifying characteristics include a pierced left ear, a tattoo of a panther on his right forearm, a tattoo of a scorpion on his left shoulder, a scar on the calf of one leg, and he has caps on his teeth.

Morris is listed as a critically missing person because he has Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for which he took medication, and he had exhibited suicidal tendencies in the past.

Extensive investigative techniques have been used during this multi-year investigation to try to gain information about what may have happened to Morris. No evidence has been developed to confirm whether or not Morris is alive.

His family believes that he would not have stayed away this long without making contact. His family also believes that he would not intentionally have left and abandoned his dog.

At this stage of the investigation, foul play is suspected.

Crime Solvers of Montgomery County are offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest and/or indictment of the person(s) responsible for a felony crime against the victim.

Anyone who has information about the whereabouts of John James Morris, Jr. is asked to call Detective Stephens in the 5th District Investigative Section at 240-773-6239.
