    Details of Disappearance

    McCullough was last seen in Many, Louisiana on August 7, 2015. He left his residence, driving his Mitsubishi Montero Sport with the Louisiana license plate number RRA831 and a faded sticker in the back window saying "In Memory of Josh Miller". A photo of the Mitsubishi is posted below this case summary. McCullough was going out to go look for work. He never returned and has never been heard from again. After his disappearance, his vehicle was found abandoned in a wooded area.

    At the time of his disappearance, McCullough was awaiting the completion of a bench trial; it had been delayed from July 31 to August 26 to allow a witness to testify. He'd been charged with aggravated second-degree battery in August 2014 after he allegedly severely beat a man in the bathroom of a bar on State Highway 6. The victim suffered multiple head and facial injuries, was initially comatose and required hospital treatment and rehabilitation. McCullough has an extensive criminal record, with 35 arrests dating back to 1994 for crimes including drug possession, theft, three counts of driving while intoxicated, and issuing worthless checks. He could be sentenced to up to fifteen years in prison if convicted of aggravated second-degree battery, and because he was on felony probation at the time of his arrest, he could have had his sentence enhanced under the state's habitual offender laws. After his disappearance, an arrest warrant was issued for him after he missed a court appearance.

    It isn't clear whether McCullough is running from the law, but police and his family are anxious to find him. His case remains unsolved.
