Sheriff's Office Asks for Assistance in Locating Missing Adult
On July 2, 2021, at approximately 1122 hours, our Communications center received a phone call from a woman reporting her 38-year-old stepson missing. She was calling from Texas.
She said she last saw her stepson, Samuel Jernigan, on May 14, 2021, at approximately 4:37 PM. She last spoke to him by phone on June 2, 2021, at approximately 3:38 PM.
The reason for her concern was due to recent mail notices of unpaid bills which is out of character for him.
He has been known to hang around the West Colorado Avenue and 31st Street areas. Samuel Jernigan is described as a white male, 5'10", 150 pounds, brown hair and hazel eyes. He has a Ying and Yang red circle tattoo on his chest, black tattoos (unknown designs) under both armpits, a mask tattoo above his left ear.
Photographs of Samuel Jernigan are attached to this media release.
If anyone has information as to his whereabouts, or if anyone has seen him, please contact the Sheriff's Office Investigations Tip Line at 719-520-6666.
