James Wesley Johnson, 23, left with only his computer on Dec. 13. He doesn’t have a driver’s license or own a vehicle, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Johnson’s father reported him missing that evening.

According to police in Southfield, Mich., Johnson boarded a Greyhound bus in Augusta. The bus was bound for Southfield, a northern suburb of Detroit. Johnson arrived at the bus station in Detroit on Dec. 14, but didn’t continue on to Southfield, according to The Detroit News.

Authorities believe Johnson might be in Oakland County, which is just north of Detroit.

Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said there is no evidence of foul play in Johnson’s disappearance.

Anyone with information about Johnson’s whereabouts is asked to call Investigator Johnny McDonald at (706) 541-2800.

Sounds like he might have met

Sounds like he might have met someone online...I know he took his computer with him, wonder if there's any way for the police to look into his email account, etc. to see if there's any clues to where he could have gone, or who he could be with. I mean, who just chooses to go to Southfield Michigan?

This guy's an adult, so technically he can come and go as he pleases...it's a shame that he's worried his family so. I hope that he is safe and sound and hopefully reaches out to his family. As a parent, I know I'd be worried sick - no matter how old your kid is.
