On June 13, 17-year-old Hunter Barnes emptied his savings account at a Maryville ATM, drove off in his white Mazda Protege and disappeared.
A Blount County Sheriff's Office spokesperson says they are looking in to where Barnes went, but they don't believe he is in danger.
It's 10News' policy not to report on missing or runaway people, unless asked to do so by law enforcement.
The sheriff's office did not ask for the media's help in locating Barnes.
But the community's response to the teens disappearance has been overwhelming.
"He's just not your typical runaway, we have no idea," says Barnes' mother Karen Click. She said everything was peaceful in their home and her son was every mother's dream.
Click said she's amazed and proud of how the community came together to organize a prayer walk for Hunter on Saturday.
More than one hundred people wearing T-shirts with Hunter's face and holding signs with his picture, walked from Maryville High School to the Kroger where he worked.
Click said they're trying to spread the word.
"Son, just let us know you're OK, that you're safe," Click said. "Just please let somebody know where you're at."
In addition to the people pounding the pavement, the teen's step-dad Billy Click said Hunter's footprint in cyberspace is incredible.
"Facebook has been the engine driving this," he said.
Established by Hunter's sister and her friend, the page dedicated to getting Hunter home has over 10,000 members.
"The network just went viral, it's all over," marveled Billy Click. "I believe that its made it spread faster than any other way."
Hunter's sister, Cheyenne Barnes, says the page continues to get more attention.
"So if we keep adding more and more people, somebody will eventually say something," says Barnes.
Hunter is a student at William Blount High School. He turns 18 next month.
