    TYSON, Judge.

I. Anders Review
    Counsel appointed to represent defendant has been unable to identify any issue with sufficient merit to support a meaningful argument for relief on appeal and asks that this Court conduct its own review of the record for possible prejudicial error. Counsel has also shown to the satisfaction of this Court that he has complied with the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S.738, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493, reh'g denied, 388 U.S. 924, 18 L. Ed. 2d 1377 (1967), and State v. Kinch, 314 N.C. 99, 331 S.E.2d 665 (1985), by advising defendant by letter dated 7 July 2001 of his right to file written arguments with this Court and providing him with the documents necessary for him to do so.
    Defendant has not filed any written arguments on his own behalf with this Court. A reasonable time in which he could have done so has passed.
II. Conclusion
    We have fully examined the record to determine whether any issues of arguable merit appear. We have been unable to find any prejudicial error and conclude that the appeal is wholly frivolous.
    No error.
    Judges WYNN and GEER concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
