    Could be Lauryn Dickens? She went missing in neighboring Shelby county last year.

    Rogersville is in the Northeast corner of the state, which borders WV, Ky, and NC

    I saw this in the local paper this morning. So sad. Rogersville/Hawkins Co. is about 30 minutes away from me.

    Also, a lot of child neglect has been going on in this area here lately. I'm not sure what came of it, but a toddler was found in a ditch a couple of weeks ago in her pajamas. About a month ago, a child was found wandering in Walmart at 4am, because he had been left there by his parents who were supposedly high on synthetic drugs and prescription pills.

    Remains of infant found near Rogersville several years old
    By staff report
    Published January 1st, 2012


    ROGERSVILLE — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Sunday the remains of an infant found in the shed of a Hawkins County residence Friday are several years old.

    Authorities believe they know the child’s identity but weren’t releasing that information Sunday. The remains were found by the current renter of the residence Friday morning behind a residence on Forest Lane just south of Rogersville off Route 66.

    Sound then like the remains may be that of a child whose parents/family once resided at the location the remains were found and that child can not be currently accounted for.
