SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Investigating Missing Person Complaint
DATE: October 18, 2016
CASE #: 16-021640
The Kingsport Police Department is investigating a missing Jonesborough man who was last seen in Kingsport. Johnny Rae Linebaugh was reported missing by his mother on October 6, 2016; however, she has had no contact with him since August 30, 2016.

He was last seen at the John R. Hay House, located at 427 East Sullivan Street in Kingsport, where he was temporarily residing. His mother said that it is very out of character for her son to go this long without communicating with her, so she is naturally concerned for his well-being.

Mr. Linebaugh is a 34 year old white male adult. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build and weighs approximately 230 pounds. He has short brown hair with a receding hair line and hazel eyes.

A photograph of Mr. Linebaugh has been included in this release. Anyone who may know his current whereabouts is asked to contact the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
