Search on for missing Jackson County teen

MCKEE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Jackson County teenager, who may be endangered, went missing from his home in McKee overnight, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say 16-year old Cody William Tincher left his home on Highway 2002 sometime between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators say he took cash, a pistol and his parents white 2003 Ford F150 pickup truck.

The teen’s mother told deputies that Tincher suffers from Reactive Attachment Disorder, which she says prevents him from bonding with his parents and results in a lack of impulse control.  Deputies were told Tincher has taken medication most of his life to control his impulses, but it was discovered recently that he had not been taking his medicine as prescribed.

Tincher is white, 6’1″ and weighs around 250-pounds.  He has black hair, cut above the ears and no facial hair.

He may be wearing a brown Bomber jacket and a cowboy hat.

The Ford F150 pickup he drove away in has a CB antenna on top and a yellow CHOOSE ADOPTION license plate with the number 355-2AD.

Deputies stress that if you see Tincher, do not try to intervene.

The public is asked to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office immediately at 606-287-9979 or your local law enforcement agency.
