The Covington County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in locating Joshua “Josh” Mahaffey, last seen at Salem School Rd., Collins Saturday morning between 9:00 am and 10:00 am.

Josh is a 39-year-old white male about 6’6″ weighing about 230-235 lbs. He walks with a limp in his left leg. He has a tattoo of barbed wire around his upper left arm.

He reportedly told his family that he was going to Jones County to stay with a family friend but did not arrive. Mahaffey has also been known to frequent the Hattiesburg area.
