Officers seek missing Tenn. man

The Johnson County (Tenn.) Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help finding a missing man with Alzheimer's Disease.

Sheriff Mike Reece and other Johnson County emergency officials have spent the last three days in national forest land looking for Harry Rosenberg, 82, who was last seen at his home around 4:30 p.m. Jan. 13.

Rosenberg, who is 5' 8" and 160 pounds, has balding gray hair and was wearing a baseball cap, according to the sheriff's office. He was last seen on foot walking toward Gentry's Creek Falls.

The man is in good health but does have Alzheimer's disease. He came to the area from Colorado.

The location where Rosenberg was last seen is near the Virginia line, surrounded by forest land that connects to North Carolina. North Carolina emergency officials have also been involved in the search, but search crews have been hindered by heavy rain and flooding in the area.

Anyone with information about Rosenberg's whereabouts is urged to call the Johnson County Sheriff's Office at (423) 727-7761.
