Williston police are searching for a man they say may be suicidal.
Spencer Allen Strong, 23, is described as a black male with light skin, 6 feet tall and weighing 125 pounds. Strong reportedly walks with a cane, has short hair and wears wire-rimmed glasses, and is described as a "small and frail" individual with some physical disabilities.
Strong was last heard from about 3 a.m. today at his home on Roy Street in Williston, according to the Williston Police Department.
He was online playing a game with a friend in California when he told his friend that he was about to leave his home and kill himself, police said. It wasn't realized he was missing until about 7 a.m.
A dog team was sent to the scene but was unable to establish any track.
Anyone with information on Strong's whereabouts is asked to call the Williston Police Department at 803-266-7013, or Barnwell County dispatch at 803-541-1078.
