Matties Call - Taurus Mitchell-1
Taurus Mitchell

A statewide Mattie’s call for a missing 19-year-old hearing impaired male by the name of Taurus Mitchell has been issued by the Newton County Sheriff’s Office

Even though Taurus Mitchell is 19-years-old, he has the mental capacity of a 9 or 10 year old, according to authorities.

His mother reported him missing yesterday and he was discovered missing Sunday morning.

Mitchell is described as 6-feet tall, 170 lbs. and wears a hearing aid in his left ear. He has a mole on one of his forearms, unsure of which one, and he was last seen wearing a black hoodie, a neon green sweater, blue jeans and black ankle length socks.

Mitchell does wear glasses but left them at home and can’t see well without them.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts or who has contact with this missing person is strongly urged to contact 911 or the Newton County Sheriff’s Office with this information at (678) 625-1400.
