Investigators release new information in search for missing Dawson County man

- Dawson County resident Quinton "Jimmy" Walls vanished without a trace nearly two years ago. On Tuesday, the Dawson County Sheriff's Office released new details in the investigation in hopes of generating leads in the baffling case.

"We really don't know whether or not he [Quinton] is in danger, whether he is alive or whether he is well at this point," said Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson.

The sheriff released a new composite sketch of a "person of interest" and new information. Walls was reported missing on June 8, 2015. His truck was found in Dawson Forest, but there was no sign of the missing man or clues that might point to what happened to him.

FOX 5 News sat down with Jimmy Walls' mother in February. Gracie Walls said her son was a family man, but had turned to drugs after a shoulder injury a few months before he vanished. She fears he was the victim of foul play.

"For his truck to show up, and no sign of his body around kinds of leads us to believe something more was at play here, than just him possibly overdosing," she said.

As the two-year anniversary of his disappearance approaches, Sheriff Johnson is releasing new information from a possible witness who reported seeing two men with Jimmy Walls vehicle in the area where it was found just prior to Jimmy being reported missing.

"We had a gentleman come forward, stated that he recalled seeing two subjects come into Dawson Forest dropping off the vehicle," the sheriff said.

Investigators released this sketch of one of those men, described as a Hispanic or Native American male in his early 20s, approximately 6-feet tall, weighing about 160 pounds. The witness told detectives the man in the sketch and a white man with white shaggy hair and a beard, were in a 70's model car, possibly a Pontiac.

"We are recognizing them as a person or persons of interest and would like to identify them and hopefully speak with them," said the sheriff.

Anyone with information, in this case, asked to contact Dawson County Sheriff's Captain Thurmond Atkinson at 706-344-3535 ext. 20171.
