The missing Sevier County teen, who was feared drowned, has been located safely.
According to Bob Stahlke with the Sevierville Police Department, an acquaintance brought Alan Pittman to the police department on Monday. He did not appear to have any injuries, but he is being evaluated.
Emergency crews are spending this Memorial Day looking for a missing teenager.
The Sevier County Rescue Squad has boats in the water and search dogs on land, looking for Alan Pittman, 16, who was last seen swimming across the French Broad River.
Rescue crews have suspended the search for a missing 16-year old teen last seen in the French Broad River.
The Sevierville Police Department says they and several other agencies were looking for the teen near McCroskey Island. That's just north Sevierville.
Police say the teen has been missing since 4 p.m. when he ran away from his home off Big River overlook. They say his grandfather last saw 16-year-old Alan Pittman trying to swim across the French Broad River.
Authorities say they are not sure whether he made it to the other side or possibly drowned. They used the Knox County helicopter to try to find the teen.
They suspended the search around 9 p.m. when it got dark. Pittman is 5' 1" and weighs 180 pounds. He has short blonde hair and blue eyes.
If you have seen the teen, authorities are urging you to call 911 with any more details.
