60 year old David Riemens is originally from Michigan-
Since his mysterious disappearance on Wednesday his family made the almost 5 hundred mile trip from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Watertown, Tennessee in hopes of finding their loved one.
David Riemens had just one meeting to go before heading to Michigan to see his family last Wednesday...
But he never came... Now his brothers and sisters came to Watertown hoping to have the reunion that was already overdue.
Jim Riemens says, “Everybody is trying and I think we just haven't looked under that right bush gone over that right rock ask that right person where he is.”
For the last week the family David lives with in Watertown has not seen him- everyone says this is out of character...especially since he moved to Tennessee 25 years ago.
Jim Riemens says, “Once he got here - he settled here and he is really happy here he likes it here this is his home the folks around here probably know him better than we do.”
Community members say not seeing David around has been strange...
John Cisco says, “A lot of us are spending a long time thinking about it we just really don't know what to do because we have done about everything we can.”
It's believed David met an elderly man who needed stone work on a house he was building for his daughter- together the two were supposed to meet with a contractor.
Jim Riemens says. “He went to a location he was going to meet somebody - somebody picked him up and the trail stops there.”
A week later David Riemens’ car still sits in the Dollar General parking lot and while his family says they are running out of time they are not giving up hope that he is alive.
Jim Riemens says, “We believe he is still with us and time is just very crucial at this point ... I think we are going to find him.”
They just hope someone will have information that will lead them in the right direction.
Anyone with information should call the Wilson County Sheriff's office immediately

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
