What makes this case extra special is that Mr. Burks suffers from seizures and memory loss, which makes it easier for him to get into dangerous situations without realizing the danger. Mr. Burks was last seen on the 1600 block of Charlotte Drive on August 31st, 2021. With it being 2+ weeks since making contact with any friends or family people are really worried about his safety.
