Superior and Duluth Police Departments are continuing an investigation into the disappearance of a missing 18-year-old and they're asking for the public's help.

Sylvester McCurry of Duluth was last seen leaving Stargate Night Club in Superior around 11 p.m. Jan. 17.

There is still no definitive information that has led investigators to the whereabouts of McCurry, according to a news release issues Friday evening. However, information gathered at the start of the investigation indicated McCurry was intoxicated on the night he disappeared.

Investigators have considered the possibility that McCurry may have attempted to cross the St. Louis River or harbor in an attempt to get back to Duluth. Extensive searches have been conducted of the river, harbor and piers in the area.

As the investigation approaches the four-month mark, police are asking anglers and other citizens out enjoying the nicer weather to be on the lookout for anything that may provide clues to McCurry's disappearance.

Additionally, citizens in Superior's North End neighborhoods are asked to check any outbuildings or other areas where McCurry may have sought shelter. Owners of buildings that may be vacant are also being asked to check their buildings for anything that may provide assistance in this investigation.

McCurry is described as a light skinned black male with short curly brown/black hair and brown eyes. His is about 5-foot-10 and 150-160 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, white Nike shoes, a polo-type striped shirt, and what is believed to be a gray fleece-type jacket at the time of his disappearance.
