FLORENCE, Ky (WTHR) — Kentucky Police are searching for a missing 24-year-old man who has autism.

Matthew Geohegan was last seen by his parents early Monday morning, according to Boone County Sheriff's Office in Kentucky.

Geohegan is a man with autism and has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He is currently not taking his medication.

According to police, Geohegan is "paranoid" and has stockpiled survival supplies because he believes an alien invasion is going to occur soon.

These supplies include a change of clothes, knives, axes and hatchets. A possible destination is reportedly to rural Indiana.

Geohegan is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 135 pounds. He has blue eyes and short blond hair with a beard.

He was last seen wearing a black zip up hooded sweatshirt, solid gray or black t-shirt, blue jeans and white Adidas tennis shoes.

He left his residence driving a silver, 2007 Toyota Corolla with Kentucky plate No. 718KZY.

Anyone who sees him or his vehicle is urged to call 911 immediately.
