EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The search continues for an Effingham County man who has been missing since Sunday night.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office said Doug Morris is off his medications, and while there has been activity on his Facebook page, no one has seen or heard from him since around dinner time on Sunday night.

Morris is not in any trouble and he's not wanted by authorities for any reason, his family and friends just want him to come home.

Morris lives on Nease Road in south Effingham. He is an avid racer and race fan with a lot of friends at the Oglethorpe Speedway who have been posting on his Facebook page, along with his family and friends, begging him to come home.

At 11:36 p.m. on Sunday, almost five hours after he was last seen, Morris, or someone using Morris' Facebook account, posted, "It's amazing only one person could have stop this. But her cold heart won't even let her say a word. Love you all."

Some of Morris' friends said Facebook messages have been checked as recently as a few hours ago, and the sheriff's office is searching everywhere from around his home to Oglethorpe Speedway to the Meldrim and Eden communities.

"You know, his phone has been off and pretty much everyone, his family and friends, fear for his safety and wellbeing," said ECSO Spokesman David Ehsanipoor. "He's off his medications and we are just trying to locate him and get him back home safe. We are hoping someone may recognize his vehicle or know where is is, and even if he is out there, we need to make sure he is ok just for his own wellbeing."

Morris was last seen traveling in his gold Chevrolet truck with Georgia tag BQL 4857.

If anyone has any information on where Morris might be or if they have heard from him, please contact the Effingham County Sheriff's Office immediately.
