A Union City restaurant manager has gone from being missing to being wanted.
Union City police revealed Thursday they were searching for Wendy’s restaurant closing manager Michael Lynch as they also continued to investigate the disappearance of money from the restaurant.
Lynch, 22, disappeared earlier this week and was classified as missing Thursday.
Today, Union City Police Department investigator Derrick O’Dell said Lynch has been sighted in Memphis and his status has changed “from missing to wanted.” He said Lynch’s family has been cooperative in the investigation.
O’Dell said a warrant has been obtained charging Lynch with theft over $1,000 in connection with the disappearance of the money from the restaurant. Anyone who has information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the police department at 885-1515 or Crime Stoppers at 885-TIPS (885-8477).
The manager of Wendy’s restaurant at 1401 South First St. in Union City filed a report about 8 a.m. Tuesday in reference to missing money. During the investigation, police discovered that the closing manager, identified as Lynch, was also missing, according to police.
Last contact with Lynch apparently was a phone call made to his wife just before 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Lynch is described as a white man who is 5-feet-11-inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and has a tattoo of a dragon on his right forearm.
He was last seen wearing a button-up dress-style white shirt with a checker design and an embroidered Wendy’s restaurant decal, navy pants and work-style boots. He was last seen driving a four-door 1989 Pontiac 6000, which is primer gray-colored and has Tennessee tag C93-79W.
