“We’ve been all over the county today looking for him,” Lyons said. “We checked an address in Perryville, we checked an address in (Junction City), we’ve been to several in Danville in the Ben Ali area and everyone said they haven’t seen him.”

LeDonne is 5-foot-4; weighs 135 pounds; and has black eyes, black hair, a medium build and a dark complexion, according to the missing persons report. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie, dark jogging pants and tan boots.

Lyons encouraged anyone who spots LeDonne to call 911.

“As far as I know he’s not a danger to himself and he shouldn’t be hostile,” he said. “It should be OK but it’s probably best to contact the Danville 911 center so they can send someone out to make contact with him.”
