The family of a missing Hoke County man and former Scotland High School football player is reaching out to the public in hopes of ensuring his safe return.

Family members said Isaiah Robinson, 20, of Raeford, hasn’t been seen since late Saturday night or early Sunday. A Wilco-Hess convenience store worker told Leverna Robinson, Isaiah’s mother, and sister Cayianiesha Robinson, that Isaiah Robinson came by the store on Highway 5 twice that night.

The former Fight Scots cornerback, Class of 2012, hasn’t been seen since.

The Robinsons are working with Det. Craig Armstrong and the Aberdeen Police Department to help find Isaiah and track his last movements. Isaiah Robinson had recently started work with Chapel Hill-based Strata Solar. The company has an ongoing project in West End. Cayianiesha Robinson said her brother doesn’t have his own transportation, so he was staying at Motel 6 in Aberdeen over the weekend.

Isaiah was supposed to be at work on Monday morning but did not report, his mother said. He does have a Facebook account, she said, but does not regularly post on social media. While it’s not unusual for a longer period of time to pass in between posts, Leverna Robinson said it certainly is unusual for him to disappear.

“He lives here with me,” she said. “As far as calling, you know, he don’t call nobody. He’s always home, so we call him.”

Robinson said while police officers conduct their search, she and family members are traveling Highway 15/501 towards Laurinburg in hopes of finding someone who saw him.

Isaiah Robinson, 20, was last seen Friday night in Aberdeen. He is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds.

Deputy Chief Carl Colasacco, of the Aberdeen Police Department, said late Monday afternoon there’s no evidence to suggest anything other than Robinson left on his own. He said Robinson checked out of his Motel 6 room sometime Friday, and by the time he was reported missing, the room had already been cleaned and rented out again.

As for the timeline at the Highway 5 convenience store, Colasacco said the store clerk — who went to school with Robinson — said she couldn’t recall exactly what day she’d last seen him. Colasacco said his department is working to obtain video surveillance footage from the store.
