Officials searching for missing man after his car was found abandoned

The Pointe Coupee & St. Landry parish sheriffs offices are searching for Nathaniel Lee Melancoln.

Earlier this week, a red, four-door Honda Civic was recovered from the Sherburne Wildlife Management Area.

That car came back to Melancoln. Deputies then learned that Melancoln has been missing from the Grand Coteau/Opelousas area since March 29, 2022.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Office or St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office.
