    OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — "We just want him found.”

    Those are the words of Tricia Funk, whose 19-year-old son Derek Ryan Funk disappeared last week.

    An update.

    Derek's mother said it was not true that he was severely depressed. He was under pressure and they talked about it as a family.

    They still have not found his automobile. He had bank cards that have not been used and his phone goes right to voicemail.

    There's a photograph of him at this link that shows his tattoos better. He has almost sleeves on both arms.

    His parents also noted he loved his job with the rail road.

    Updated story. Derek is still missing.

    An Oak Ridge family is using advertising to help find their missing son. They hope the image will help close the 9 month old case.

    On May 10, 2010, Derek Ryan Funk, 19, left the home of a friend in Powell, climbed into his white Ford Ranger pickup truck, and started on the 15-mile drive to his home on Coffman Street in South Knoxville.

    He has not been seen since.

    Crime victims' families remember loved ones

    Some carried oversized photos of their lost loved ones. Others wore T-shirts in memory of a father or a daughter killed.

    Kevin Funk kept a copy of his son’s “missing person” flier pinned across his back.

    At the fifth annual Victims’ Remembrance Walk along Volunteer Landing on Sunday, Kevin and Tricia Funk were doing all they could before others might forget.

    Their son, Derek Ryan Funk, was last seen the night of May 10, 2010, as he left a friend’s place in Powell and headed for home in South Knoxville. And while police investigators suspect foul play, they’ve found little information since to explain the then-19-year-old’s sudden disappearance.

    Derek Ryan Funk (19) - Powell TN, 2010


    Derek Ryan Funk

    Endangered Missing from Powell, Tennessee since May 12, 2010

    Age: 19 -- Height: 5'10" -- Weight: 130 lbs -- Hair Color: Blonde -- Eye Color: Blue

    Derek's nickname is Scud. He has scars on his left hip and right wrist. He has the following tattoos: a four-leaf clover on the top of his right foot, a rose vine and skull on his left leg, the phrase "Never Give Up" above his navel, the word "Courage" spelled lengthwise on his right side, Corvette flags above his left hip, a wing on each bicep above the elbow, a five-pointed star on each arm below the elbow, a four-pointed star on the inside of each upper arm, black and red pinstripes on the inside of each wrist, a Yin symbol with a dead fish and the word "Death" on his left outer arm, a Yang symbol with a live fish and the word "Life" on his right outer arm, and theatrical faces and a gun somewhere on his body.



    Derek was last seen in Powell, Tennessee on May 12, 2010. He was visiting a female friend there and left about midnight. A few minutes later, she called him and they talked for several minutes before he said he was tired and needed to focus on driving. He never arrived at his own home 15 miles away in Knoxville. He was reported missing when he failed to show up to work. His white Ford Ranger pickup has also never been found. Foul play is suspected.
