WAVERLY, Tenn. (WTVF) — In Waverly, tragic moments are frozen in time.
"It hurts, it hurts," said Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis while holding back tears during a press briefing.
At the reunification center at McEwen High school, survivors can find the things they need and report the loved ones they need to find.
"So actually today we came to the school to report my sister-in-law missing," said resident Charline Bradley. "She was hollering for help. We don't know."
Among the missing is 2-year-old Kellen Cole Burrow.
"They were on the clotheslines hanging on, she had a hold of all of them trying to keep all of them," said his step-father, Kalaub McCord. The waters ripped Kellen away from his mother and four siblings. "He was a wonderful kid. He was a wonderful kid," said McCord.
The long road to recovery has begun, as residents try to fix the things that can be replaced while holding out hope to find the things that can't be.
"Our friends and our families and our people that we associate with is all that matters," said Bradley. "There is nothing material that matters."
Law enforcement said they are having problems with some looting and trespassing. An 8 p.m. curfew is still in place and all streets will close at that time.
Law enforcement is also asking people to stay out of the area while they continue search and recovery efforts.
