Today begins a second day of searching for a missing Campbell County man.  Twenty-year old Austin Anderson of Jacksboro has been missing going on 36-hours.  The last time the young man was heard from was by telephone in the wee minutes of Saturday morning.  Police say and that last time his phone pinged off a cell site tower was at Queener Road in Jacksboro.  Searchers have walked that entire road.

All family members, who are able, are looking for their loved one.  Friends, volunteers and law enforcement officers are also helping.

Family members say Anderson, a 2017 graduate of Campbell High, is a good kid and is not a youngster who gets into trouble.  He loves to fish and explore caves and is currently employed by Mickey and Son Lawn Care.

Austin drives a white 2007 Ford Ranger pick-up truck bearing Campbell County (Tennessee) license plate, 8 C  4 3 W 5.  He was last seen wearing a grey, Nike T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anderson loves to fish.

You are asked that if you are out and around the lake to please be on the lookout for Austin there, as well.  If you see or know the whereabouts of Austin Anderson, Sheriff Robbie Goins encourages you to call 9-1-1.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/16/2018-10AM)

  1. I was just reading the story and it said he loves to cave… you need to check caves in the jacksboro area or within a 15 mile radius. It’s been raining bad and could make it slick. He could’ve fallen and hurt himself and be trapped in a cave without cell service.
