A 31-year-old Warren County man has been missing since Sunday, and the man’s family and Warren County Sheriff’s Department are hoping someone in the Vicksburg area may be able to help locate him.

Sheriff Martin Pace said foul play is not suspected in the disappearance of Jason Allen Ashley, who resides with family members in the Floweree community in north Warren County, near the Issaquena County line.

Ashley was last seen leaving a restaurant on U.S. 61 North in Vicksburg on Sunday, Pace said. He was driving a gray 2000 Jeep Cherokee with a temporary, paper license tag in the rear window.

“There was no indication that he had planned on leaving for any considerable amount of time,” said Pace, noting Ashley’s cell phone charger, clothes and other belongings were all left at his home.

Ashley’s family reported him missing Thursday, Pace said.

“We’re making every effort possible to find this young man, and we’re encouraging anyone who has seen him or heard from him to call the sheriff’s office or crimestoppers,” said Pace.

The sheriff’s department can be reached at 601-636-1761. The Crimestoppers hotline is 601-355-8477, or 1-866-481-8477.
