COVINGTON, KY (WAVE) - The man believed to have last seen a missing northern Kentucky teenager faced a parole hearing on November 16.

Jacob Bumpass was paroled for two theft convictions after he pleaded guilty two years ago. A parole board will make a decision before the end of the year whether he walks out of prison or stays put.

Meanwhile, police continue to investigate Paige Johnson's disappearance. Bumpass told police that he dropped Johnson off in Covington, KY the night she was last seen in late September.
