Rowlett Police have asked for the community’s help in locating Nino Jackson, 26, who has been missing since Jan. 19.
According to police, Jackson was last seen the morning of Friday, Jan. 19, in the area of 911 W. Wheatland Road, in the southwest part of Dallas. His vehicle, a cream-colored Pontiac Firebird, was found by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper about 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20, abandoned on the southbound side of the President George Bush Turnpike — aka Hwy. 190/George Bush Tollway — at the westbound I-30 ramp over Lake Ray Hubbard.
Jackson is about 5-feet, 8-inches tall and weighs about 198 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue button-down shirt and khaki pants.
Anyone with information regarding Jackson or his whereabouts is asked to call 9-11 or to call the Rowlett Police Department at 972-412-6200.
Oliver Blumer, a friend of Jackson’s, said that people from the LGBT community and from the North Texas River Rafters organization have stepped forward to help in searching the area where Jackson’s vehicle was found. He said the Rowlett PD is small with limited resources, so volunteer searchers are appreciated.
