    TN - Donald Pierson, 67, Kingsport, 19 April 2017



    KINGSPORT — City police are searching for a 67-year-old diabetic who vanished during a trip to Bays Mountain Park Wednesday night.

    According to a news release from the Kingsport Police Department, at approximately 7:40 p.m., Donald C. Pierson, of Kingsport, was visiting the park’s animal habitat with the rest of his party, but left to walk back to the car alone. When the rest of his party returned to the vehicle, Pierson was nowhere to be found and has not been seen or heard from since.

    KPD personnel are in the process of looking for him in and around the Bays Mountain Park area. Authorities say it is possible that someone might have picked him up and given him a ride out of the park.

    Pierson is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 250 pounds and has diabetes. He was last seen wearing jeans, a dark colored T-shirt, a blue ball cap and brown shoes.

    Anyone who sees him or knows his current whereabouts is asked to contact the KPD immediately at (423) 246-9111.

    There are several trails at this park. If you don't know them well, you could easily get lost. There is also a lake here.

    Search and Rescue Teams from the Kingsport Police Department, Kingsport Fire Department, Sullivan County E.M.S., and the Kingsport Life Saving Crew, with aerial support from a Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter, continued to search the area in and around Bays Mountain Park well into the late night and following early morning hours for missing and possibly endangered 67 year old diabetic, Donald C. Pierson, to no avail.
    Search parties will reconvene at 9:00 AM Thursday morning to resume the search. While investigators are currently operating on the primary supposition that Mr. Pierson is still inside the park, they have absolutely not ruled out the possibility that he was somehow able to secure a ride outside the park.

    Mr. Pierson has been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database as a missing and possibly endangered person. Information regarding his disappearance is being heavily circulated to the general public via traditional (television, newspaper, and radio) media outlets as well as multiple social media applications.

    Any tips or possible sightings should continue to be immediately reported to Kingsport Central Dispatch by calling 423-246-9111.

    WCYB video of Mr. Pierson. IMO, he looks a little weak, but hopefully with something to eat he will be ok.
