A 37-year-old Erin man remains missing. According to Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman, Jonathan Daniel Smith has not been seen nor heard from since mid-July, and his family reported him missing about two weeks later.
Newman said Smith's car was found torn up and abandoned on Farm to Market Road 252 at County Road 348, but there was no sign of him.
According to Newman, there was a possible sighting of Smith by a Jasper Police officer, who believes that he saw him hanging around the Tri-a-Nite Motel on North Wheeler Street in Jasper. Newman also noted that Smith has a history of drug use.
Smith is a white male, he stands 6'01" and weighs about 160 pounds.
If you've seen Smith, or if you know his location, Newman asks you to contact his department, or your local law enforcement agency.
