SCOTT COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Investigators fear something has happened to a missing Scott County man, but the search continues.

James Randall "Randy" Perkins Jr. was last heard from Feb. 14. He was reported missing nearly a month later.

Scott County Sheriff Mike Lee says deputies are searching for a person of interest in the case, but that person has fled the area to Alabama. Lee says investigators believe something bad has happened to Perkins, but would not elaborate.

Lee says Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agents and U.S. Marshals are also assisting in the investigation.

There is a $2,000 reward for information on Perkins' whereabouts and an arrest related to his disappearance.

Perkins is described as being a white male with a thin to medium build. He is 6' 1" and weighs about 170 pounds, with green/gray eyes and balding brown hair.

A Facebook page has been created by family and friends dedicated to finding information on his whereabouts. If you have any information you're asked to call the Scott County Sheriff's Department at 601-469-1511.
