CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee family has been searching for a blind man who disappeared more than a week ago.

Family member Miranda McIntire told WVLT-TV in Knoxville that Cumberland County resident John Richard vanished on October 22.

McIntire said family members searched a creek near Brown's home, but found no sign of the man - no evidence or handprints - to show he had been there recently.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department has asked anyone with information about Brown's whereabouts to contact law enforcement.
