    Blount County asks help in finding missing teen

    Friendsville, Blount County, Tennessee -
    Authorities are asking the public's help in locating a Friendsville teen that hasn't been seen in two weeks.

    According to the Blount County Sheriff's Office, Joseph Dillon French, was last seen when he got dropped off at William Blount High School on the morning of January 15.

    His parents believe he then briefly came home in the middle of the night and left his phone there.

    Authorities said his family hasn't seen or heard from Joseph since then.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    So he wasn't missed after school the day he went missing? And somehow his phone made it back home? *** Hinky*** meter going off.
    I wonder if anyone confirmed he ever was actually at school that day?

    Sad. Joseph, do you go by Joe? Joey? Joseph? Call your family. They are worried! You matter to more people than you will ever know.

    The sheriff confirms the Instagram account belonging to French has a headline that says, "I wasn't born legendary but Imma die a legend!" "I'm a free man." It is unclear when French posted the Instagram and if is related to the current situation.

    Here's a post from the BCSO from Feb. 15 saying Joseph was "located unharmed" on Feb. 14, after he was initially reported missing on Jan. 15.

    From reading the MSM links, he went missing January 15 & was found safe Feb. 15. He must have had to go to juvenile court and was placed in the facility where he attacked the guard and took her gun. Apparently he committed suicide shortly thereafter. RIP.

    Well that was certainly not how I thought this would play out.
