Authorities are still looking for an Evans man who left his home on Dec. 13 and hasn’t been seen since.

James Wesley Johnson, 23, left his home with only his computer on Dec. 13. He doesn’t have a drivers 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 should call Inv. Johnny McDonald at (7060 541-2800.
