These are anxious days for the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” family.
Billy Thompson, the older brother of family patriarch Mike (Sugar Bear) Thompson, has not been seen or answered phone calls since Saturday. The worried family has filed a missing persons report, according to TMZ and other news outlets.
(Side note: The missing uncle is not Sugar Bear’s other brother Lee “Uncle Poodle” Thompson.)
The family is concerned because Thompson reportedly has been struggling after losing his job and breaking up with the mother of his children. He was last seen at Sugar Bear’s house in McIntyre, Georgia.
TLC canceled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” last year after family matriarch June Shannon started hanging out with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.
She and Sugar Bear, parents of former child pageant star Honey Boo, are estranged but have apparently joined forces to look for Uncle Billy.
