Lawrenceburg-Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of the disappearance of a Lawrenceburg, Indiana man.  Investigators along with the man’s family are pushing for anyone with information in the disappearance to come forward.


Mid-morning on April 26, 2017, Joshua Batchelor, age 37, left his grandfather’s home on Front Street in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.  He was seen getting into a gray or green colored pickup truck and has not been seen sent.  Batchelor did not tell anyone who he was leaving with or where he was going.  He also has not had contact with his family since he left the home.
