WATERTOWN, Tenn. - Friends of a Watertown man who went missing on Wednesday are trying to remain hopeful, but they are starting to fear the worst may have happened to him.
"I'm very lost, we've been exhausted this week," says Laura Nuessle about the search for her friend David Riemens.
David is a stone mason by trade, and friends believe he was meeting a local contractor about a job on Wednesday. The two were apparently driving to a construction site together, but no one has heard from David since Wednesday, and his Ford pickup truck is still sitting at the Dollar General in Watertown.
"He can still be out there; he can still be alive; we just got to find him," Laura says.
Police don't believe David's disappearance is suspicious, but his friends think he may have gotten into a car accident somewhere. Over 50 of David's closest friends wanted to start searching for him on Sunday, but they don't know where to start.
"We all want him back; we all want him back," Laura adds.
Anyone with information that could help find David is asked to call Watertown Police at 615-237-3224.
