As of October 28, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) cataloged 22,289 missing person cases in the U.S. There are 658 people reported missing in Tennessee. That's why 10News decided to highlight those cases in hopes of bringing people home to their loved ones.

10News went through 153 cases from the East Tennessee area. That information was put on NamUs by local law enforcement agencies. It can also be entered by family members of the missing individual; however, all information is cross-checked by law enforcement.

We found the circumstances behind a person's disappearance varied from person to person. Some mysteriously walked off and never returned, some intentionally ran away from home, some are on the run from authorities, and others disappeared under unknown circumstances

No matter how people ended up listed on the database, our intention is for them to be found.
