    Blake Smith, 20, was last seen leaving work at Weedman Lawn Care at 2 p.m. on Saturday and never returned to his dorm. He hasn’t been heard from since.

    His car was found running at a construction site with his cell phone inside. Knoxville police are searching the area with the K9 unit.

    Smith attends Crown College of the Bible in Knoxville and is a graduate of Mountain View Baptist School in Grayson Valley.

    Family members say the last interaction they can find was an Instagram photo posted about the time he went missing. The photo is of a lake that they can’t identify and hope someone will recognize the area.

    A photo of this lake was posted on Smith’s Instagram at about the time he went missing. Searchers would like to know the location.

    If you have any information regarding Smith’s whereabouts, please contact the Knoxville Police Department at*(865) 215-7000.

    Looks like the water location was identified and that per what family is posting, a single shoe and a broken necklace were found by the car at the construction site.

    His family must be so worried. I hope they are searching around the lake.

    One great thing about Knoxville is that a lot of places there have security cameras. It’s even likely that the construction site had one to prevent theft of materials. Due to this happening during the weekend, many places may have been closed, but I figure PD will check these in the morning.

    So, the last place he was definitely seen by others was his work.
    619 Barbrow Lane in Knoxville.

    From what others narrowed down, and checking the sat view on google maps, it looks to me that the photo was taken at the Admiral F. Park in the north east corner...right where the paved road appears to go off into a dirt road/trail. Seems like a fairly secluded corner of the park. Several routes there from his work, and several routes from there into Knoxville. If what the above video states is true, then his car was found in Maryville and not Knoxville. This would involve most likely driving past the airport. Hopefully cameras there would have something.

    Saw this one on FB, hoping for good news. The IG photo is kind of odd....

    The family suspects foul play in his disappearance. Blake Smith's car was found wrecked into a construction site in Knoxville with a cinder block on the gas pedal and his phone and wallet in the car. His shoe, chain necklace and beanie were also found at the site, though they were not near Smith's last known location at Admiral Farragut Park.

    Smith, 20, of Trussville, Ala., was last seen Saturday afternoon. He left work at Weed Man Lawn Care and stopped at his dorm at Crown College before leaving. He later posted a photo of a lake at Admiral Farragut Park - his last known location - on Instagram.

    The park is not where Smith's car was found and his family said they didn't know how far away the construction site was from the park. Family and police were searching the park Monday morning.

    "He goes to a Christian college, he’s a good kid. He goes to the jails and juvenile homes and preaches to the inmates. We don’t know of anyone that has anything against him."

    Previous articles said the engine was running when they found it. So the car was running and found wrecked with a cinder block on the gas pedal? So someone was trying to make it look like he got in a car accident? :scared:
