Search for missing man accused of rape

The search continues tonight for a Johnson County man, accused of raping a 13 year old girl.

The man disappeared the day his trial was supposed to begin.

Investigators say Johnny Eugene Fairchild of Paintsville never showed up for court on Monday, and they cannot find him.

His family says he left a suicide note, but Paintsville Police say there is a chance he may be alive and hiding.

Friends say he did not want to go to trial.

Fairchild will face more charges when he's found.
