COVINGTON, Ga. – Investigators with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office are seeking clues in the disappearance of a man who went missing under suspicious circumstances Sunday night while fishing at Lake Jackson.
According to NCSO spokesperson Sgt. Cortney Morrison, Johnny Green, 49, went missing around 8:30 p.m. Nov. 5 while fishing with a friend from a lake bank near the bridge on Conley Ditch Road. He reportedly went to his truck parked on the road for a pack of cigarettes and did not return. He hasn’t been seen since.
Green is a white male, 6-foot-2-inch, 230-pound, with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing blue shirt with yellow letters on the back, a camo sun visor with red letters “GAF” and camo shorts.
NCSO is asking anyone with information, or anyone who might have been in the area of the bridge or on Conley Ditch Road around that time Sunday evening and thinks they saw something to contact NCSO Investigator Jamie Green at 678-625-1455.
“Regardless of how minor it may seem, it might be important to law enforcement,” Morrison said.
