Missing Person’s Vehicle Found in Oxford After Being Towed from Molly Barr Trails

The Oxford Police Department and the University of Mississippi Police Department are conducting a joint investigation into the disappearance of Jimmie “Jay” Lee.

Lee’s vehicle was located today at a local towing company after it was removed from the Molly Barr Trails apartment complex on the afternoon of Friday, July 8, 2022.

Lee was last seen leaving Campus Walk Apartments at 5:58 am on July 8 wearing a silver robe or housecoat, gold cap, and gray slippers. We believe Lee may have been visiting someone at Molly Barr Trails at the time of his disappearance.

Officers from both departments are actively searching for Lee, and we are asking for the public’s help. If anyone has information regarding Lee’s whereabouts or his activities on Friday, please contact OPD at 662-232-2400, UPD at 662-915-7234, and CrimeStoppers at 662-234-8477, or you can direct message us on any of our social media accounts.

CrimeStoppers has pledged $1,000 for anyone with information that leads to Lee being found.
