CROSSVILLE (WATE) - The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office is searching for an adult man who has been missing for more than a week.

Family members say John Richard Brown, 42, was last seen Oct. 22 at his sister's home where he had been staying.

His sister said she thought Brown may have gone to a friend's house for the day because none of his property was missing or disturbed.

Brown has not returned home.

Officials say he legally blind, but has no other health issues.

The Cumberland County Rescue Squad has helped search the woods around Brown's sister's home, but have not found any sign of him.

Brown is a white male with brown hair and blue eyes. He stands five-feet, 10-inches tall and weighs 130 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at (931) 484-6176.
