I want to thank Tony L. for sending this to me. Lets hope they find Eric alive and well.
Eric Smith, a 41-year-old Cedar Bluff resident, departed his home on the morning of November 8, 2013 to go hunting. He was never seen again and no traces of him were discovered, despite extensive efforts by local law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers to locate him. Thousands of dollars in reward money for information leading to his whereabouts have yielded nothing fruitful.
Smith’s disappearance is a mystery that continues to linger in the minds of local residents. A foreman for Consol Energy’s Buchanan No. 1 operation and a devoted family man, Smith seemingly had a good life and no reason to abandon everything of his own choice.
In the wake of his absence, many rumors circulated among Tazewell County citizens of possible foul play, but nothing was ever proven. Cedar Bluff Police Chief David Mills said his department investigated every tip they received, but none of them led to the truth behind Smith’s fate.
If anyone reading this knows where Smith is, I urge you to contact local law enforcement or send an email with any relevant information to email@example.com.

Don’t let this story fade until the truth is known; his family deserves to know what really happened.
