Deputies searching for missing autistic man from Boone County
BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Authorities are searching for a missing, autistic man who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office says 24-year-old Matthew G. Geohegan, of Florence, was last seen by his parents on Monday morning at their home on Estella Court.
Deputies say Geohegan is not currently taking his medication and is paranoid due to his belief that an alien invasion is going to occur soon.
To prepare, deputies say Geohegan has taken several survival supplies with him. They say these supplies include a change of clothes, knives, axes and hatchets. Possible destinations are reported to be rural areas in Indiana including, Brookville Lake, Peppertown or the Chesterville area.
Deputies say Geohegan was last seen wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, solid gray or black t-shirt, blue jeans and white Adidas tennis shoes. He left his home driving a silver 2007 Toyota Corolla with a Kentucky license plate, 718KZY.
Anyone who spots Geohegan is asked to call 911 immediately.
