A Jacksonville Man Missing For Four Days

It's now been four days since anyone has seen, or heard from a Jacksonville man. Now, the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department is asking the FBI for help in finding him. Thirty-five-year old Mazi Bul Haque was last seen closing the Super Shop 5 on South Bolton Street in Jacksonville. Haque owns the convenience store. Haque's coworkers say on Sunday night he was supposed to deposit money from the weekend, but the money never made it to the bank. The store is still open, but workers are having a hard time without Haque. They say customers are very concerned and have been driving around looking for him.

"It was beyond just a boss relationship," said Casey Roberts, Haque's coworker. "He was more like a father figure. He took care of everybody. If I were having problems he would talk to me and help me in any kind of way."

"The customers that come in, if Haque wasn't here they would always ask, where's Haque at, when's he coming back," said Erin Sorrell who used to work for Haque. "Everybody's concerned about him." Coworkers say last night they were told someone had used Haque's credit card at a casino in Shreveport, but it turned out the card was used there before he went missing.

Haque is 5'6", weighing 130 lbs. He has black hair and brown eyes. Haque lives in Jacksonville with his wife, who just moved to East Texas from Bangladesh five months ago. Police say he drives a black 2003 Ford Expedition with license plate W31 PYR. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department at (903) 683-2271.
