NEWTON, NC (WBTV) -

Residents of Catawba County spent Saturday afternoon raising awareness for a Newton man who has been missing since April 2016. 

Family and friends of 23-year-old Andy Sigmon met at the Little Pigs BBQ on North Main Avenue in Newton to show support and raise funds for the missing man.

According to reports, Sigmon was last seen by deputies when his Jeep was found on the side of Highway 64 in Davie County just north of Peter Hairston Road. When a deputy went to check on him, they say Sigmon came out of the woods and didn't appear to be in distress. 

Later in the day, neighbors called 911 saying a man, Sigmon, was walking in the woods without a shirt or shoes. When officers returned to the area, they found his Jeep, but Sigmon was gone. He has not been seen or heard from since.

The family is continuing to search for answers. 

The family says that the proceeds from the event will help them continue to search in the area where Sigmon went missing.

If you have any information on Sigmon's whereabouts you're asked to call the Davie County Sheriff's Office at (336) 751-6238.
