"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" family member Billy Thompson is reportedly missing. The brother of patriarch Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson and brother-in-law to Mama June Shannon has allegedly not been since April 11. TMZ claims that no one in the family has had any sort of communication with him, via phone or text message, since Saturday. According to the site he was last seen at the McIntyre, Georgia home shared by Sugar Bear, Mama June and her four children. Billy came over that afternoon to celebrate Mama June's 18-year-old daughter Jessica Shannon going to prom.
Photos show him and the teen posing for photos together before she headed off to the dance. Although he appears happy in the photos, Billy has reportedly been struggling with some issues as of late. TMZ reports the Georgia native has been battling depression since going through a nasty break up with the mother of his two children and losing his job.
Mama June and Sugar Bear have since gone to local police and filed a missing person report. Authorities have not yet been able to locate him, and the family has not commented on the situation.
The last few months have been no walk in the park for the “Honey Boo Boo” stars. The hit show, which aired on TLC, was canceled after it was revealed that Mama June was allegedly dating a convicted sex offender following a brief split from Sugar Bear. TMZ broke the story that Mama June was dating a man named Mark McDaniel, who had previously served 10 years in prison on child molestation charges. McDaniel reportedly abused daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon when she was just 8 years old. Mama June denied their relationship was romantic and claimed the two only met up to give her daughter, who is now 15, closure.
