BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City Police say an eighth-grade teacher who was last seen just days after Christmas has been found dead.
Gregory Ferrell, who was a teacher at Monarch Academy in northeast Baltimore, was found dead inside his car in the 1900 block of West Baltimore Street around 4 p.m. Saturday, according to police.
Detectives say there were no obvious signs of trauma or foul play. The investigation is ongoing.
The 56-year-old was previously listed as a “critical missing person.” He was last seen Dec. 29, 2017 inside Melba’s Place, a Baltimore nightclub.
Ferrell was described as a soft-spoken, kind person.
“If they were having some meetings, he’d be outside like, ‘Hi!’ He was really nice,” Toni McWayne of Monarch Academy said.
A man who asked to not be identified told WJZ Friday that he knew Ferrell well and described him as a good neighbor and a man who kept to himself.
“He was a good guy, a likable guy,” he said.
