A man goes missing, and now investigators say there's reason to be concerned about his whereabouts.

Family members of 21-year-old Jeffrey Price, II who also goes by Kevin, say he left his job at Eagle Hardwood in Pulaski County Monday afternoon, and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Investigators say they found Price's truck on fire near Somerset. Sheriffs deputies say it looks like someone tried to put it in a pond, but when the truck got caught on some trees they set it on fire.

They searched the area but couldn't find any sign of Price.

His father, Jeff Price says this is not like his son who usually gets off work, takes a shower then goes to see his girlfriend. When he didn't show up at her house Monday afternoon she became worried and called his dad, who called police.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department says Price is around 5'9", and weighs around 150 pounds.

He has blonde hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a "Tri-City" shirt with a grey thermal undershirt, and brown boots.

If you have any information on Price's whereabouts, you're asked to call The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department at 606-678-5145.
