FLORENCE, SOUTH CAROLINA (WMBF)- The Florence County Sheriff's Office used blood hounds to search around 58-year-old Joel Poston's home Monday, but did not turn over any leads into the Scranton man's disappearance.

"The Sheriff's Office is involved in the matter because of the concerns of the family. Mr. Poston is not contacting them, and it is highly unusual," said Captain Michael Nunn, with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

Family members said they last heard from Poston early Wednesday morning. Poston was wearing blue plaid pajama pants and a white shirt. Family members are unaware of any medical or mental conditions.

Neighbors said Poston rarely ever leaves his home on Ronald Road in Scranton, and he can often be found working on cars at his small car repair shop.

"We talk to him or see him at least every day," said Jennifer Cook, Poston's daughter.

Jennifer Cook said it is unusual for her father to not talk to their family every day because he lives just next door to other family members.

Family members said in the days leading up to his disappearance, Poston was making some improvements to his home.

"He was doing some work in the house; he was replacing the floors," said Cook.

Captain Nunn said as of right now, there has been no evidence linking Poston's disappearance to foul play.

"We're investigating the matter in hope that our putting his image and information out there… it will prompt someone to contact us, about his whereabouts," said Nunn.

If you have any information, please contact the Florence County Sheriff's Office at (843) 665-2121 ext. 372 or Crime Stoppers of the Pee Dee at 1-888-CRIME-SC. You do not have to reveal your identity to leave information.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
