Missing Lexington man's girlfriend speaks out

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - On Thursday, WKYT'S Miranda Combs spoke with Johnson's girlfriend, who's the last one to talk to him. She was talking to him on the phone when he got a knock at the door of his North Hanover Drive apartment. He hasn't been seen or heard from since then.

Lisa Horobin said she's been dating Johnson for a year. She goes to college out of state, but spend about four months this past summer with him in Lexington. She called us Thursday, saying she and the family are still trying everything they can to keep Alex's name and face at the front of everyone's mind. Lisa said their last conversation together was normal, and Alex was excited to head to Bowling Green to see his family for the holiday's the next day. When Alex got a knock on the door, he said he'd call her back later that night, but he never did.

"I think that is the worst because you have no idea. Everyone's mind just keeps going and you go through millions of scenarios in your head of what could have happened, where he could be. It's weird when none of them make sense," Horobin said.

Lexington Police are not commenting on this case, saying this is a missing person investigation. Horobin says police are doing everything they can to find Alex.

On Thursday night, Mellow Mushroom is holding a benefit to help raise funds to support the search for Johnson. It's scheduled to last from 7 to 11 p.m.

Local band 'The Tallboys of Kentucky' will perform.

An account for donations is being set up. His family put up a billboard in central Kentucky asking for information. They also put up fliers around the area.
