Details of Disappearance

Burnett was disappeared from his home in the 400 block of Gallimore Mill Road in Jeffersonville, Georgia on December 19, 2011. He was last seen on Highway 80, heading east towards Dublin, Georgia, about a mile from his residence. One witness reported Burnett was running, as if he was being chased.

He'd talked about traveling to New Jersey and going to stay in a nursing home. He has never been heard from again and tracker dogs were unable to detect his scent in the area.

It's uncharacteristic of Burnett to leave without warning, and an extensive search turned up no indication of his whereabouts. Few details are available in his case.
