I saw this posted on the wall in Food City in Oak Ridge today. This is so sad and I wish I could help. I will pray for your family in hopes of his safe return. Prayers from my heart to the family.

I personally grew up with Funk and he was a great guy. This is a very old story, though. Very old. This has gone on for a year or more if I can recall correctly.. you can find more information on the FB just type in Derek Funk. We have all grown extremely frustrated at the lack of work done to find Derek. He was not a bad person, by any means, just to let strangers to him know. He wasn't in a gang, or crazy on drugs or any of that. Thank you for your concern.

This is a heartbreaking story. I just don't understand why there are no law enforcement agencies with any info or hunting for leads.

He is an ADULT. If he chooses to disappear, that is his business. It may be sad/heartbreaking/xxxxx but people must respect his autonomy. Many people have done this, only to reappear in approximately 5 to 10 years.

I was told he got involved with the wrong crowd. He owed money to a DD and didn't have it. What have you heard.
Oh, really? Whoever told you that is a pathetic, lowlife, attention seeking liar! And your juvenile need to join in and spread such a ridiculous rumor like that, proves that you are an insecure coward, no better than your "source", and you both are really to be pitied for your lack of class and obvious ignorance! What have I heard??? I heard that “It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt”! And that's no rumor, that's a fact! Remember that!
