COVINGTON, Ky. - The search will continue later this week for 17-year-old Paige Johnson of Florence, who has been missing for almost one month.
Members of the Covington police SWAT team and other law enforcement will head to East Fork Lake State Park in Batavia later this week to continue search for any sign of the missing teenager. That's where court documents show that area was where Jacob Bumpass, the man last seen with Johnson, was in during the hours after he picked her up from her Florence home.
On Sunday, the Boone County Water Rescue Team searched the lake but found nothing.
Bumpass is in the Kenton County Jail in Covington on a probation violation. Prior to Johnson's disappearance, Bumpass posted a picture of himself and Johnson on his MySpace page.
Police said Bumpass told them he dropped Johnson off at 15th Street and Scott Boulevard in Covington on Sept. 22, the last time Johnson was seen.
Bumpass has not been charged in connection with Johnson's disappearance.
Family and friends have noted that Johnson hasn't signed on to any social network websites that she regularly visited.
If you have any information about where Paige Johnson might be, or might have been, please call The Covington Police Department at (859)292-2222.
