THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A historical marker has disappeared from the side of a highway in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural resources issued a news release Friday announcing the disappearance of Marker K-32, which honors John H. Mills, a 19th century president of Oxford Female College and the first head of Oxford Orphanage and Thomasville Baptist Orphanage (Mills Home).

The marker was located on Interstate 85 in Davidson County. It’s unclear when it went missing.

The department is soliciting tips on the marker’s whereabouts.

The North Carolina Highway Historical Marker program was authorized in 1935, and more than 1,500 of the distinctive silver-and-black markers have been erected since.


This story has been corrected to show marker had been on Interstate 85, not Interstate 95.
