Cynthiana’s Shady Lawn is a personal care facility where residents are free to come and go as they please, as long as they check back in. But Larry Price hasn’t been seen since early Friday night, and now police are growing concerned for his health and the safety of others around him.
Police searched for Larry L. Price on Friday night but suspended the search just a couple of hours in. “Since they believed he got into a vehicle they discontinued the search at this time in the local area,” says Walter Tapp with Cynthiana Police Department.
Corporal Walter Tapp says Price’s last known visitor was his cousin Larry Skaggs, who borrowed Price’s mom’s car. “He went to his mother’s house who lives in Morehead, he possibly picked him up and he is possibly with him,” says Tapp.
Police say this isn’t the first time price has walked away from Shady Lawn before.
“He went to his mom’s house and he was gone for quite some until they had an altercation and she called police, and that’s where they found him,” says Tapp.
Due to his bipolar disorder, Price relies on medication to keep him from turning violent, according to police. “If he doesn’t take his medication, that’s why there is an urgency. If he does become violent we want to make sure he is found and given medication and doesn’t harm himself or anyone.” Tapp says Skaggs is from Lexington. Lexington Police say they went by the last known address for Skaggs but no one was there.Police say Price was last seen driving his mother’s car which is a 1993 blue Buick Roadmaster with license plate: 144BLP.
