According to 6ABC News, RHEA COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) – The search remains ongoing for a missing North Carolina man in the Pocket Wilderness area of Dayton, Tennessee. According to WTVC, Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal said Tuesday that Curtis Dustin Williams was last contacted on Monday, May 10.

The Knox County Rescue Cave & Vertical Team was deployed to the area Saturday to assist in the search. Rhea County Detective Rocky Potter told WTVC that Williams’ dog was found early Thursday afternoon. K9 units were brought in to see if they can backtrack the dog’s path to find Williams.
