Union City Police are searching for Preston Grissom, who they say has been missing since February.

Grissom is 5’6” and 130 lbs., with brown eyes, short twist sponge hairstyle and was last seen wearing a black Starter hoodie and gray sweatpants. He has two tattoos — a cross on his right arm and “Karen” on his left arm.

Grissom was reported last seen in Union City near the intersection of Stonewall Tell Road and South Fulton Parkway on Feb. 10, at around 1 a.m. There has been no contact between Grissom and his family since this date, which is extremely uncharacteristic.

Union City Police Department held a press conference with the family and friends of Grissom to ask the public’s assistance in locating him. Grissom has heavy ties to the Riverdale Road area of Clayton County and works in Douglas County.

Grissom’s 11-year-old son, Preston Grissom, Jr., spoke at the press conference and pled for his father’s safe return.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Preston Grissom, please call 770-515-7850 or Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477). A $5,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to the whereabouts of Grissom.
