Oxford police said the investigation is ongoing and has asked for the public’s help in the case.

“If anyone knows anything or sees anything, say something. Contact law enforcement. Just tell them what you know. This is my plea that you help find my child,” Lee’s father Jimmie Lee, Sr. said in a video plea posted online by Oxford police.

Lee’s car was found on July 11 at a local towing company after it was towed from Molly Barr Trails apartment complex in Oxford.

The 2014 black Ford Fusion with a gold racing stripe down the middle of the hood has a license plate “JAYLEE1.” It was taken to the Mississippi State Crime Laboratory for processing, police said at the time.

Police believe Lee was visiting someone who lives in Molly Barr Trails before disappearing July 8 around 5:58 a.m.

In social media posts reviewed by CNN and images released by authorities, although Lee dresses in women’s clothing and makeup in some pictures and videos, Lee writes that he identifies as a gay male.
