    GA - Samuel 'SJ' Johnson, 67, Atlanta, 4 May 2017

    It is that dreaded thing we all have here, someone missing from your extended family. Please help.

    13868211_G.jpg

    TLANTA -- Family and police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing man whose disappearance is said to be "suspicious."

    According to the Atlanta Police Department, Samuel Johnson was last seen on May 4 at his home on Pomona Circle in southwest Atlanta.

    At this time, police don't know the details surrounding the 67-year-old's disappearance, but they do suspect foul play.

    According to Maj. Adam Lee with the Atlanta Police Department, investigators went by his home after Johnson was first reported missing and found the home in disarray. Police said it appeared the home had been ransacked as if someone were "looking for something."

    Investigators also ran Johnson's credit cards but didn't turn up any transactions since his disappearance. Police said no one in his family indicated he was in any trouble and he doesn't live in "an area of town that would cause any concern."

    ~~

    Johnson is described as a 6-foot tall man with brown eyes, salt-and-pepper hair and goes by Sam or "SJ."

    Police believe he was last seen in a rented 2017 black Toyota 4 Runner with Louisiana tag N445381.

    If anyone has any information on his disappearance, they are asked to call the Atlanta Police Homicide/Adult Missing Persons Unit at 404-546-4235.

    Police said the home was ransacked. They also say Johnson had rented a black Toyota 4-Runner with Louisiana plates and that is also missing.

    Johnson owns Metro Bedding on Metropolitan Parkway and is beloved in the community.

    A check of his credit cards shows no transactions have been made.

    This one is right in my backyard. So the facts are...

    - Elderly man with no signs of dementia or mental disorders.
    -Runs a bedding store
    -By all accounts is likable and not into any questionable activities.
    -Has had no contact (seemingly) with the outside world since his disappearance.

    Have to go old school with this one, because many investigational avenues used nowadays, like social media, aren't used as widely by elderly folks.

    There is nothing but the two articles already posted, nothing.
    I'm guessing Samuel is single and living alone? What about a girlfriend?

    Where are you Samuel?

    No updates!

    Who was the last person to reportedly see him? Does he have a business partner?

    Did SJ not own a car? When did he rent the 4-Runner, where was he last seen in it and by whom? E.g., was he last seen on camera at a bank?

    I hope he's found alive soon.

    All these questions and more need answering, Indy Anna.

    I have a personal friend who is in LE in Atlanta who knows Samuel due to her security detail and that's how I found out SJ is missing.
    Questions, questions and more questions.
    As much as we want him home safe, I have a really bad feeling about this case.

    Agreed, it doesn't sound good. Wish there was more in MSM about him.

    Oh my, whoever wrote this complaint could easily get a job as a journalist at the Daily Mail.

    Good find!

    I was wondering how far SJ's business, Metro Bedding, is from his home. Here is link to map showing the distance is barely over a mile (a 3 min drive):

    https://goo.gl/maps/MqwFHLTFkvA2

    I suppose if someone were really angry at him, for any reason, it would be safer to accost him under the cover of darkness and in his private residence rather than at his business during the day. It would be easy enough to find his address on the Internet. But, what was someone looking for in his home when they ransacked it? It must have been something specific, if the intruder didn't take (hasn't used) his credit cards. Would he have kept checks, especially business checks, in his home? I suppose LE would be looking at all of his bank accounts. MOO

    I am in touch with his granddaughter. She said he had an operational vehicle in his garage but chose to rent cars (why?). She said the only info she has is from the news reports.

    We need to clean out the crickets...

    Where are you Samuel?
    What I want to see is Samuels granddaughter putting her arms around her papa and giving him the biggest hug and kiss ever welcoming him home. Hope, sometimes it's all we got.
