Posted By Sparta Live | December 30, 2013 12:00 am
White County Sheriff deputies and the Sparta-White County Rescue Squad responded to Eastland Cemetery Road early in the morning hours of Christmas Day in an attempt to locate an 18-year-old man that was reported missing.
According to Public Information Officer Detective Chris Isom, on the evening before, Braxton Insco was at the home of a relative when a domestic dispute may have occurred, after which Insco left on foot.
Officers do not know which direction Insco traveled, and attempts to ping his cell phone have been unsuccessful. Isom reports that Insco may be confused or disoriented.
Insco has contacts in Jamestown and Cumberland County, however officers have not been able to trace him to either of those locations.
On Christmas morning, deputies Donnie Qualls and Will Whitson, Sgt. Lanny Wheeler and the Rescue Squad searched the area for Insco.
Isom says the Rescue Squad searched all the way to Scott’s Gulf, but was not able to locate Insco. Isom credits the squad for the hard work they contributed in the frigid early hours of Christmas morning.
In the days since, Sheriff Oddie Shoupe, Chief Tommy Simmons, and Detectives Isom and Steve Page have continued working on the case, but Insco’s whereabouts continue to remain a mystery.
Braxton Insco is described at 18 years old, with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5’6” and 150 pounds.
He was last seen wearing black slim-fitting jeans, a black shirt, a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie hat.
If anyone has any information on Insco’s location, please contact the White County Sheriff Department at 836-2700 or central dispatch, 738-7111.
