    Adams agrees, "That's another reason why we knew something was wrong. He was trying to raise his boys. He would not have just gone off and left them like that."

    Search conducted for 5 Bedford County missing persons cases

    The families surrounding five Bedford County missing persons cases are seeking new closure.

    A search covering nearly two miles got under way Saturday around the Duck River. Investigators were hoping to find any clue to any case in what they were calling "an area of interest."


    Also needing answers is Lillie Buchanan whose Shelbyville grandson, Antonio Taylor, has been missing since September 1999.

    "I'd just like to have closure," said Buchanan. "It may not come today, but we're still praying and we don't give up. We keep up hope and prayers that we will get closure."

    'Never give up': Rally keeps hope for missing residents alive

    The raindrops that began falling as balloons were released at a rally for Bedford County's missing persons Sunday seemed perfectly appropriate.

    Tears from heaven, one might say.


    The family of Antonio Taylor, last seen in 1999, has found some closure -- but not the type they wanted.

    "We don't think he's alive after all this time," Lillie Buchanan, Taylor's grandmother, said. "He wouldn't have left his boy."
