Reed’s aunt, Dana Lightfoot, made a Facebook post about Reed missing and then later received a message from a woman named Ameshia, according to the report, who claimed to have seen Reed on March 29. Ameshia’s message, according to the report, stated she believed she saw Reed on Normalview Street getting into the an old silver vehicle that morning. 

There is not a Normalview Street in Bowling Green, but there is Normalview Drive. 

According to the report, Reed’s employer said she saw Reed on Tuesday, March 27, at his job, but Reed did not show up for work the next day. His employer then became concerned when he did not show up for work and contacted hospitals to see if he had been admitted, but he was not a patient at the hospitals contacted.

Reed’s hobbies include going to the public library and listening to music in his apartment, according to the report.
