Lake dragged for missing Johnson County couple
Missing now for well over a month, the search for a missing Oil Springs couple continues as Johnson County law enforcement and rescue workers try to resolve the mystery of what happened to Larry and Sandra Blanton in early September.
The couple’s son, William “Willie” Blanton, now jailed for attempting to obtain prescription medication in his father’s name last week, has told police that his parents left their Pigeon Creek farm in a blue Nissan “to get away” for awhile.
Dive teams using sonar equipment searched Paintsville Lake on Sunday looking for the missing couple.
Police have called Willie Blanton a person of interest in the case.
