Details of Disappearance

Johnson disappeared from Louisville, Kentucky on September 17, 2018. He was last seen in the 400 block of south Clay Street, near east Liberty Street. His family stated he was doing well, handling his mental illness, and had a job at a hotel and his own car and apartment, but that he became overwhelmed and walked out of his life.

Since his disappearance there have been sightings of him in the downtown Louisville area, wearing the same torn, tattered clothes each time. He may be accompanied by a small Caucasian man with acne scars on his face and may be in the areas of the Fourth Street Live complex or the Dosker Manor Apartments.

Johnson has had episodes in the past where he would wander away, but he would always be found safe within a few hours. His case remains unsolved and he's considered to be in danger due to his mental illness.
