(COLUMBUS) - Bartholomew County Sheriff deputies continue to search 25-year-old Joseph Ross of Brownstown.

Ross was reported missing on May 13.

Police say Ross was involved in a domestic dispute with his fiance in Brownstown before he disappeared. He was picked up from Brownstown by his friend and taken to the Columbus home.

Brian Ross, his father, says Joseph was afraid he would be going to jail because of the domestic dispute.

Ross was last seen around 8 p.m. entering a wooded area on County Road 250 East and Cliffy Creek at Amberley Addition in Columbus with a friend's 12-gauge shotgun. He has not been seen since.

Ross is 5' 10" and weighs between 135 and 145 pounds, has blond hair, hazel eyes and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a green O'Reilly's Auto Parts T-shirt when he disappeared. He did not take his cell phone.

Deputies from Bartholomew, Jennings Counties and Indiana State Police, continue searching for Ross.

Anyone with any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is asked to contact Detective Terry Holderness of the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office at (812) 565-5927 or unanimously on the department's Tip Line at (812) 379-1712.
