The feds say Hodges may be using dating apps to meet both men and women, moving in with them, and then going on to the next person after he overstays his welcome.

Kinston police say over the past week marshals have received tips he has been living near Building 18 of Simon Bright Apartments.

They say Hodges has frequented the Lunch Box on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, seen almost daily in the 700 block of Thompson Street, and two weeks ago was seen riding a bike at Mitchell Wooten Apartments

He is described as 6′6″ tall, and weighs approximately 273 pounds with a muscular build. He is bald, has brown eyes, and usually has a beard. Hodges has multiple tattoos on his chest and arms, including an “OG” on his chest, a dog on his right shoulder, “TNT Hardcore” on his left shoulder, and “Love Shirley Nancy,” as well as a Masonic symbol on his left arm.

Investigators believe Hodges remains in close contact with family and had worked as a long-haul trucker. They said he has strong ties to eastern North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and New York.

Anyone with information about Hodges’ location should call marshals at 1-877-926-8332.
