    22-year-old Joshua A. McConnell was dropped off by a friend at the convenience store near Fort Henry Drive and North Eastman Road on April 13. McConnell was reportedly supposed to meet a person from Bristol at that location. Kingsport PD say, "Due to information shared with investigators regarding Mr. McConnell’s personal and medical history, there is legitimate cause to be concerned for his health and welfare."

    The body in the river is not Josh. The family has heard nothing and are desperate for any information. Thank you all for posting about Josh. He is loved and missed.

    It says he was dropped off on April 13th at a convenient store to meet an unidentified person from Bristol.

    Yet, he wasn't reported missing for another week by his brother? Did he live at home or on his own?
