Father of missing Ocean View man pleads for help finding son

Mason Mills, 24, of Ocean View, DE

The Father of an Ocean View man is pleading for help to find his son who went missing earlier this week under suspicious circumstances.

William Mills, of Ocean View, appeared on Weller Does Delmarva with Jim Weller Saturday morning and expressed grave concerns over his son, 24-year-old Mason Mills, who was last seen in the Frankford-area on Monday.

Mills said his son's disappearance is deeply concerning and out of the ordinary, and that he left behind all of his essentials including his clothes and cell phone charger.

"We're all super worried about him," explained Mills. "My wife's into tears all of the time and I break up every now and then. It's just hard to go through all of this not knowing where he's at. If he's safe that's one thing, but if he's not it's a different story. I appreciate any help anybody can give us in locating him. We don't know whether or not he's still alive, if he's hurt, or whatever."

A Gold Alert was issued by Delaware State Police on Wednesday. Detectives are currently investigating the disappearance, according to Mills, who said his son's cell phone was pinged on Monday afternoon in West Ocean City and his debit card was later used at an ATM in Virginia.

Mills is described as 5’9″, 140 lbs, with brown hair and blue eyes. He drives a black-colored 1997 Ford Explorer with Delaware registration PC131821.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Mason Mills is urged to contact Troop 4 at 302-856-5850 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
