Family searches for missing blind man

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

Family member Miranda McIntire told WVLT-TV in Knoxville (http://bit.ly/1bKzSNB ) that Cumberland County resident John Richard vanished on Oct. 22.

McIntire says family member 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 asks anyone with information about Brown's whereabouts to contact law enforcement.
