Police have since searched for clues in Johnson’s disappearance, including several wooded areas near Nearman Drive.
Search efforts have included multiple methods, said Kansas City, Kan. police officer Cameron Morgan.
“We have searched the area on foot, with drone, cadaver dogs and with the Kansas Highway Patrol’s helicopter, and so far that hasn’t turned up anything,” Morgan said.
The department’s community policing officers have also canvassed the neighborhood near where Johnson was last seen.
“I believe the family has been out there almost every day looking as well,” Morgan said.
One of Johnson’s friends, Dynikah Brown of Kansas City, Kan., said Johnson is a respiratory therapist at a hospital in north Kansas City. She said it is unlike him to not communicate with family and friends.
“We just ask that everyone keep the family in their prayers,” she said.
Johnson is described as a black male, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He wore a black T-shirt and white shorts shown in a picture Kansas City, Kan., officials released June 20.
