UPDATED: Lake County Sheriff Department Searching for Grant Whitaker

CORRECTION: Lake County is not the original department where the missing persons report was filed with.

Grant Whitaker has been reported missing by his family to the Tazewell County Sheriff’s office. The Lake County Sheriff’s Department is just one of the many departments involved in the search. Whitaker has been declared missing since 8/20/2019. Whitaker was last seen with a gentleman that goes by the name “Maverick” and is feared to be hurt. There are multiple stories of what led to his disappearance; however, one common denominator has been that he was left at a campsite after a physical altercation.

When reporting any tips, please contact the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office at 276-988-5970 and refer to the case #M19B7796. It is common practice to report to the county that the missing person resides.

Whitaker was due at another location and when he did not appear, his family started to worry. Whitaker was reported last seen at Sinkyone Wilderness Campground in Mendocino County, California. If you have more information about the circumstances, please contact the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Department.

This is a developing story and will be updated once other sources share information that The Deaf Report is able to verify.
