Details of Disappearance

Cross was last seen on the evening of May 18, 2018, when he was dropped off on Williamsburg Street in Whitley City, Kentucky. At about midnight he spoke to someone on the phone and said he was walking through the woods. The call got disconnected and he has never been heard from again.

Cross's family stated it's uncharacteristic of him to be out of touch with them, even when he was using drugs. He was particularly close to his sister and never went more than a few days without talking to her. Little information is available in his case.
