They're looking for information about a man who has been missing since Wednesday.
Friends say this is out of his character.
David Riemens is a talented rock mason in the Watertown area- his work will just floor you... But it is his kind hearted nature that has his friends desperate to find him.
60 year old David Riemens by all accounts was a man who made magic with rocks...
Donald Neuessle says, “Every rock job David did was way cool I mean even if it was a little culvert even if it was a little retaining wall.”
Donald Neuessle has been friends with David for almost 30 years- ten years ago David began living in a tree house on Neuessle's property.
Each morning David eats breakfast with Neuessle and his wife… But since Wednesday they have not seen him.
Neuessle says, “He has left his dog here - his bags packed here he intended to be back here Wednesday and leave for Michigan- this is out of character.”
And that has members of this community concerned.
Susan DeMay says, “I can't stop thinking about it I keep running these scenarios through my head and I get really nervous and scared and I just want him to shop up so that this kind of nightmarish thing can stop.”
Neuessle says in order to find his friend he needs more information about a property owner and contractor David was supposed to be meeting with to bid a project.
He believes David and an older man - the property owner drove somewhere together to meet with a contractor about building a house for the man's daughter...
Neuessle says, “We need to know where that meeting took place because between here and there… there is a vehicle off of the road that has been not as yet found that is going to contain David Riemens and not as yet some other unknown unrecognized unnamed individual.”
And while friends stand by ready to begin a search when they are given a trail- many worry about the outcome.
Carol Klinger says, “I am really really scared for him I haven't seen a lot of people come out of situations like this successfully.”
David was set to leave for Michigan when he returned from the meeting- but his car remains parked where he is to believed to have left it at this dollar general in Watertown.
A missing person report has been filled with the Wilson County Sheriff's Department- however Neuessle says until they have evidence of foul play they are unable to investigate.
Anyone with information about David Riemens should call the Wilson County Sheriff's Department.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
