Baltimore County Police continue to search for clues in the disappearance of Wade Ricky Dickens.

Wade Ricky Dickens (34) of the 900 block of Ashbridge Drive, 21221, was last seen at work on Wednesday, November 1, in the 11000 block of Guilford Road in Jessup. A driver by trade, he was last seen operating a black 1990 Ford F-150 truck, Maryland registration '77284CD', with a gray tool box in the bed of the truck. He left work that evening and has not been seen or heard from since that time. Calls to his cell phone go unanswered.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Wade Dickens or his Ford truck is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020 or dial 9-1-1. The Baltimore County Police Homicide/Missing Persons Unit is continuing to investigate this man's disappearance.

Malachi Mitchell is approximately 5'07", 189 pounds, with short black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray "Hollister" t-shirt and gray sweatpants.

Malachi was last seen at his home in the 100 block of Anjeu Reuss Court of the Day Village Townhomes neighborhood around 4 p.m. Friday afternoon. He left home without permission when his mother fell asleep and has not returned, which is unusual behavior for Malachi.

Update (12/15/16 12:20 p.m.)

Due to pending inclement weather, the basketball clinic at Dumbarton Middle School is cancelled. 

Original Release (11/29/17 12:16 p.m.)

Kids, ages eight to 14, are invited to another free basketball clinic hosted by the Baltimore County Police Department. The clinic will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 15, at Dumbarton Middle School located at 300 York Road, Towson 21286.

Children are encouraged to bring a friend and get some hoop tips from County officers. The clinic offers kids a chance to learn teamwork, as well as develop leadership skills. It is also a great opportunity for police officers and youngsters to interact with each other. The officers are great role models for young people.

Officers from around the County will be there to share their "hoop" skills. As they do so, they will be open to questions from the kids regarding police work and how to join the Baltimore County Police Department as an Explorer or Cadet.

Pizza, water, Gatorade, snacks and a "sports sack" will be provided to all participants.

Get your sneakers, shorts and favorite T-shirt ready for the Pre-Holiday Basketball Clinic.
