Probe opened after Kentucky attorney vanished three weeks ago

An eastern Kentucky attorney has not been seen in three weeks, prompting concern for his well-being from friends and colleagues.

Clyde F. Johnson of Prestonsburg was last heard from when he told a secretary to clear his calendar for June 24. Since then, no one has been able to locate Johnson, who also works as a volunteer football coach at Prestonsburg High School.

His friend, Ned Pillersdorf, told The Courier-Journal the disappearance is "just stunning."

Friends say Johnson took his dog as well as an Xbox gaming system, a 40-inch TV and a new camper he had bought without telling his wife of 19 years.

Police say there's nothing illegal about an adult disappearing and not contacting anyone, but a missing person investigation has been opened in this case.
