    Details of Disappearance

    Johnson and his live-in girlfriend of one year, Abby Roberts, disappeared from their home in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 29, 2012. They disappeared together with an unregistered black 2012 Chevrolet Cruze; a photo of a similar vehicle is posted below this case summary. Both of them worked for the postal service. After a week passed without Roberts showing up for work at the post office, her family conducted a welfare check and found the home vacant.

    On the evening of October 3, Johnson left his and Roberts's two-month-old son, as well as his son from a previous relationship, with his mother in Torrance, California. He was driving his and Roberts's car at the time; it was later located in Compton, California. Roberts wasn't seen with him in Torrance and neither of them have been seen or heard from since. They were reported missing on October 9.

    Although there was no evidence of foul play in the home and the police haven't named Johnson as a suspect, Roberts's family believes he may have harmed her. They stated she'd been planning to leave him because she thought he'd been unfaithful. A metal trash can which Johnson purchased shortly before he disappeared and kept in the garage also vanished at the same time he and Roberts did. There had been a fire in the trash can that left a scorch mark on the garage floor and ash and soot stains on the ceiling.

    Authorities stated Roberts and Johnson are missing under suspicious circumstances. Their cases remain unsolved.
