PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) — A Kentucky family is still searching for a man who hasn’t been seen since Sept. 19 and is concerned he might be in danger.

David “DJ” Whitt, 20, was last seen along Highway 837 on the Casey-Pulaski County line. He was last seen wearing a brown and green striped sweater with a possible black t-shirt underneath and dark blue pants with a white stripe down the legs. He was wearing red wing boots and a feed store/tractor supply hat.


Whitt is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs between 120 and 130 pounds with brown hair and eyes.

His family told FOX 56 News he was acting out of character before he went missing. Before he went missing, he had legal trouble with the police and went missing shortly after being released by the police.

“The only thing that was in his system at the time of his arrest was THC. His blood work showed that his blood sugar was abnormally high, elevated white blood cell count, critically low potassium & a major urinary tract infection but we didn’t get the results until after his disappearance,” family told FOX 56.


His aunt-in-law said Whitt had never been in trouble with the authorities until two days before his disappearance.

“He is a big hearted, happy go lucky kid and we are all extremely concerned. We have had volunteers bring drones and a search dog in training out to help us, and we’re hoping to get another search dog out to the area where he was last seen today,” she said.

Anyone with information about Whitt’s disappearance is asked to contact Kentucky State Police Post 15 at (270) 384-4796 or family members at 606-706-2176.
