The 34 year-old was said to have moved to Pittsburgh when he got a job in Finance there but the company later downsized and he was relieved of his duties.
Lynetta said “He was single, not married, no kids – so he was living his life, He’d go visit friends from school and they’d go on trips. When he left last year, I didn’t think anything of it. He’d check in with me or someone eventually, But he never did.”

Lynetta said a couple of things happened after he was found initially that made her believe he wasn’t safe. According to her when Marcus’s cousin had died and he didn’t reach out was when she knew something was definitely wrong that was when she reported him missing the second time. “I didn’t want to believe he was missing,” she said. “So I kept believing he was OK. At this point, I have to believe that he’s in danger or a danger to himself, But I was still at a loss of what to do. I just want to know that he’s OK, But I just feel it in my heart that, at this stage, something is extremely wrong. I’m just worried.”
