D. Sage Smith turned 21 on December 13. But there was no party, no gathering of family and friends around a birthday cake with 21 candles on it to celebrate this milestone occasion because Sage is still missing.
And so is the person of interest in this case who probably holds the key to finding Sage in Erik McFadden
A vigil for Smith was held on November 20 at Lee Park to mark the one year anniversary of Sage’s disappearance, but you can bet the one thing the family and friends most want for Christmas is Sage’s return to their lives.
Charlottesville Police are still searching for both persons, and especially Erik McFadden. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conclusion in the case. Anyone with information on Smith or McFadden should contact Detective Ronald Stayments at (434) 970-3280 or Crimestoppers at (434) 977-4000.
