SOUTHINGTON – School officials at Wilcox Technical High School in Meriden told students today that their carpentry teacher Charles “Chuck” Davenport, who was reported missing from Southington last week, has died.
Davenport, a Southington resident, had not been seen since Nov. 27. Southington and state police have been looking for his truck for several days. Davenport walked with a cane and police believed that he likely wouldn’t be able to walk far from the vehicle.
Southington police have not returned phone calls. In a phone message to parents Wilcox principal Joyce Mowrey said students were told that Davenport has died. Students are being offered counseling.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said an autopsy will not be conducted until Wednesday.
