A man who was the last person to be seen with a missing Florence teenager had his parole deferred for two years.
Jacob Bumpass won't be considered for parole again until January of 2013.
Bumpass was the last person to be seen with missing teenager Paige Johnson, who has been missing since Sept. 23, 2010. He is not facing charges in connection with her disappearance. Her family testified at his last parole hearing in November that he gave her alcohol the night she disappeared.
Bumpass has been behind bars since October 2010 on a parole violation for a theft charge.
The search for Paige Johnson may not be as public and prominent as it once was, but Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders says the search hasn't stopped.
"The case is still under investigation by all means," said Sanders. "Nobody should think detectives have given up hope in finding Paige."
