James Martin Roberts was last seen walking away from the Appalcart bus stop. The bus stop was located at the corner of Rivers Street and Blowing Rock Road in Boone, North Carolina. This event occurred on April 21, 2016, near the Holmes Convocation Center at Appalachian State University. He has never been heard from again.

Roberts is from Kernersville, North Carolina. He was living in Boone and and attending Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute at the time of his disappearance. The last phone conversation he had with his father was normal, and Roberts said they’d talk to tomorrow, but he never called and didn’t reply to his father’s text messages.

Several days later, Roberts’s father became concerned. And so he contacted his son’s landlord, who spoke to his roommates. The roommates, in turn, checked Roberts’s room. He wasn’t there and he’d left behind his cellular phone and other electronic devices, as well as a note.

The note was vague. But it said Roberts was leaving because he had not taken advantage of opportunities he had and he was disappointed. The note did not specifically mention that Roberts planned to harm himself. And his father did not interpret it as a suicide note. Extensive searches of the area turned up no evidence as to his whereabouts.

Roberts had initially enrolled at Appalachian State University after high school. And he joined the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, but took a semester off to work at home and then enrolled at the community college to boost his academic performance.

Roberts’ friends said he seemed to take his schoolwork more seriously and was more quiet and reserved and less social on his return to school. His grades did improve and he was set to return to Appalachian State in the fall.

James Martin Roberts is a talented soccer player. And he also enjoys hiking and camping, particularly around the Blue Ridge Parkway and in the Appalachian Mountains. He didn’t have access to a vehicle when he went missing, and because of the circumstances of his disappearance, his family is concerned for his safety. His case remains unsolved.
