First report: Monday, 2:47 p.m. The Town of Orange Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a missing 18-year-old male.

Nana Appiah-Ofori was last seen at 9 a.m. in Orange on July 21st. Appiah-Ofori left with no clothes or money. His phone was pinged at 9 p.m. in Washington, D.C., on the same day he disappeared. There has been no activity on his phone since.

Text messages from his family are returned as “not delivered.”

According to his family, Appiah-Ofori was set to attend Syracuse University this fall, so his disappearance is out of character for him.

He was driving a white 2013 Nissan Altima ADR with Virginia license plate number: TYP5096.

If you have any information on his whereabouts or if you see his vehicle, call the Town of Orange Police Department immediately at 540-672-1234 or call 911.
