Authorities in Taney County have launched a missing person investigation into the disappearance of a Forsyth man on Christmas day.
Sheriff Jimmie Russell says the parents of Donald Wayne Burton, 29, filed the report with his office on December 28th.
"We have dealt with him in the past," said Russell. When asked if the disappearance could be drug related Russell replied, "All I'm gonna tell you is he's a missing person."
According to online court records, Burton pled guilty last year to domestic assault and was given 120 days shock time. He has numerous drug related convictions going back to 2001.
