Search for missing Oaktown man continues

Knox County Sheriff Mike Morris said police and conservation officers are still actively searching for a missing Oaktown teenager.

He said conservation officers are searching the ditches near where 19-year-old Clinton S. Hamilton was last seen Sunday morning, and sheriff’s deputies are conducting interviews with his family and friends.

Police are, he said, still treating it as a missing person’s case.

“We’ve got several young folks and citizens out here assisting in the search, and we’re still fielding phone calls from the public,” he said. “I’d say we’ve interviewed probably 25 to 30 people so far. We’re still working on it.”

Morris said the heavy rain has hampered the search.

Hamilton was reported missing by family members Sunday morning. His was found stranded in flood waters on Wolf Hill Road at about 4 a.m. Sunday by sheriff’s deputies and a search of the surrounding area was immediately started.

Morris said there is no suspicion of foul play at this time.

Hamilton is described as 5 feet 11 inches, 150 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information about his disappearance is encouraged to call the sheriff’s department at 812-882-7660.
