Loved ones ask for help finding missing blind family member

Cumberland County, Tenn John Richard Brown is legally blind. His family said he's been missing for nine days.

"I use to always go up to his house when he had this blue house - I always use make fun of me," said Miranda McIntire.

Times like those is what Brown's family tells us they're holding on to.

Last Tuesday they said- Brown disappeared.

"Here's the creek we searched all around it there's no evidence no hand prints nothing," said McIntire.

Searching for more than 24 hours straight. The family still has no leads to where John Richard Brown may be.

If you have any information - call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department.
