Police are back out Monday searching for a southern Kentucky man missing for nearly a year.

25-year old Jeremy Johnson vanished last June after leaving a Corbin restaurant. The search comes just days after police arrested two men in connection to his disappearance.

State police along with local police agencies are searching the ground with search dogs, hoping to find Johnson's buried body.

For almost a year the Johnson family had no answers to the whereabouts of Jeremy or what happened to him.

Daniel Grubb has been charged with tampering with physical evidence.
According to court records, Grubb is accused of moving Jeremy Johnson's body and also doing something with Johnson's 1993 Chevrolet.

Since June, police have combed the Knox and Whitley Counties looking for Johnson, but to no avail.

Court records say Grubb allegedly took Johnson's car for a strip job. But just where Johnson's body is, remains a mystery.

Johnson was a young father of a 2 year old son.

Grubb is not charged with Johnson's death. The coroners in Whitley and Knox Counties say they have not been able to locate his body.
