Missing man search turns to Facebook

LEXINGTON - Friends and family of a central Kentucky man last seen Dec. 20 have turned to social media in their quest to find the missing University of Kentucky chef.

The Facebook page Find Alex Johnson went live last week and had garnered more than 6,700 likes by Monday evening. The page is dedicated to finding 32-year-old Alex Johnson of Lexington, who hasn't been heard from since ending a phone call with his girlfriend to answer the door at his home. Relatives became concerned after Johnson didn't return their calls or follow through with plans he made with friends for that night. He also didn't attend a meeting at work the next day.

Johnson's sister, Cayce Johnson said the page has helped spread the word of the disappearance to nearly 80,000 people.

"We are just trying to broaden our reach," Cayce Johnson said.

The Lexington police department is investigating the disappearance. It had no update Sunday.

The Facebook page includes pictures of Alex Johnson with and without a beard, said Cayce Johnson. Her brother, who normally is clean shaven, had been growing his facial hair for a competition in February, and recent pictures show him with a long, full beard.

She said the family had been overwhelmed by support via texts, phone calls and online messages.
