OHIO VALLEY — A Jackson, Ohio man with family in Leon has been reported missing since around Dec. 30, according to a spokesperson with the Jackson City Police Department.
The spokesperson for the police department confirmed the family of Terrance Blankenship, 64, Jackson, filed the missing person’s report.
Blankenship’s daughter, Christie Fields of Leon, said family has been unable to reach her father since around Dec. 30. Both she and the police have been to his Jackson home and found nothing disturbed, but his car was missing. Fields said a local pharmacy in Jackson also reported Blankenship hadn’t picked up his filled medications.
The Jackson City Police Department spokesperson said at this time the department has reason to believe Blankenship could be in the Gallipolis, Ohio area. Someone with his name has reportedly filed for a post office box in Gallipolis, but investigators need to confirm that it’s him. The spokesperson also said the Jackson Police Department hopes someone in local law enforcement in Gallia County can assist in verifying Blankenship is ok if he is in Gallia County, or that Blankenship calls the department himself at 1-740-286-4131.
Fields said she just wants to get the word out that her dad’s family, and now the police, are looking for him to confirm he’s safe.
