According to a KPD news release, Johnny Rae Linebaugh, 34, was reported missing by his mother on Oct. 6, who said she had not had any contact with her son since Aug. 30.

Linebaugh was reportedly last seen at the John R. Hay House, 427 E. Sullivan St. in Kingsport, where he was living temporarily.

He has short brown hair with a receding hair line and hazel eyes.
