They did not garner the attention of Holly Bobo or Tabitha Tuders: They were not seen on an international crime show, there was no nationwide search, no one wrote a book and media coverage is limited. But these children have gone missing in the state of Tennessee. They are on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations website "Tennessee Missing Children over 18." According to the site:
"Many children in the state of Tennessee remain missing after becoming emancipated at the age of 18. The individuals on this webpage are among Tennessee’s missing emancipated persons. In some cases, these individuals have been declared legally dead, but their disappearance is still under investigation and will remain active until such time as they are recovered or their whereabouts discovered.
SPECIAL INFORMATION: The Tennessee children listed on this site do not represent all missing children in the state. Many cases are resolved before reports are received by TBI and reports are not received consistently from across the state. The children posted here are parental abductions, children considered at risk and those cases which publication would best serve."
They have not been located. Their loved ones worry daily. Can you help bring someone home?
See the TBI website here also for age-progression pictures, posters of the missing, and more information. Please contact the TBI with any information; you may remain anonymous.
