The search is on for a man reportedly missing from the Mount Hope of Fayette County.
Sheriff’s deputies said they were notified Wednesday night of a possible missing person in the Mount Hope/Pax area of Fayette County.
It was initially reported that Jeshua Robinson, also known as “Jesse” Robinson, had left his home in Mount Hope with his brother in law, Marcus
Thompson. However, Marcus Thompson had returned home sometime later without Jesse Robinson. Thompson told family members that he and Robinson had gotten into an argument and that Jesse Robinson had jumped out of the vehicle and ran.
Marcus Thompson allegedly stated that he had “shot at” Jesse Robinson during this fight. This fight allegedly happened in the Pax area of Fayette County.
Marcus Thompson was not at home in Mount Hope where he resides with his sister and
brother-in-law. Family members at the residence stated that they did not know where Marcus
Thompson was at this time. He was reportedly last seen driving a white Toyota Corolla.
Jeshua Seth Robinson, also known as “Jesse” Robinson is described as a black male, 28 years old,
approximately 5-08 and weighing approximately 160 pounds. He has short black hair and a neatly
trimmed beard and mustache. He was reportedly last seen wearing a black-and-gray hooded
sweatshirt, dark-colored jeans and white shoes. (Photos of Jeshua Robinson are included as an
attachment to this press release.)
“This is a rather strange situation,” said Sheriff Steve Kessler. “All of the information that we have
received concerning this incident is second-hand. We haven’t been able to locate or speak with Marcus
Thompson concerning this incident and we’re unsure of the exact location where this altercation
allegedly took place. We are classifying this as a Missing Person investigation at this time in an attempt
to locate Jeshua Robinson.”

Thompson, they are urged to contact the Fayette County 911 Center at (304) 574-3590. You may also
