UPDATE (July 10, 2017 10:22 a.m.):

Jonathan Lynch has been located safe. BCoPD thanks everyone who assisted in the effort to find him.

Original Release (July 10, 2017 8:17 a.m.):

Police in Pikesville are searching for a 21-year-old man with intellectual challenges who left his home during the night.

Jonathan Lynch left his home in the 9000 block of Balin Court, 21208, around 2 a.m. and was last seen at Wegman's Supermarket on Reisterstown Road around 4:45 a.m. Jonathan told a security guard there that he would walk home, but hasn't been seen since.

Jonathan Lynch is approximately 5'0", 128 pounds, with brown eyes, glasses, and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and blue shorts.

Anyone who may have seen Jonathan Lynch or has any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Pikesville police at 410-887-1279.

Two unidentified suspects are believed to have attempted to burglarize the T-Mobile store in the Milford Mill Shopping Center in the 8000 block of Liberty Road this morning by driving a van into the storefront.

A passerby called 9-1-1 after seeing a Chevrolet conversion van being driven into the front of the store around 5:51 a.m. Two suspects exited the van but were still unable to gain entry to the store because of a security gate barring the window and entrance areas. They were seen fleeing towards the nearby Exxon gas station, leaving the van, which was later determined to be reported stolen, still in the storefront.

Police and fire units responded and secured the scene. BCoFD investigators determined that there is no structural damage that would cause the shopping center to be unsafe, but T-mobile will be closed since the van penetrated the picture window.

This incident will continue to be investigated by officers of the Pikesville precinct.
