My heart goes out to the family of Terry Roberts. His son recently posted a notice here on Topix seeking help in finding his father.

Terry Roberts, found in rural Hickman County on New Year's Day by his family, took his own life.(see the WZTV story on Topix.com ).

Family members believe law enforcement should have been doing more to find him.

A search through rural Hickman County didn't take long Tuesday morning.

Family and friends comfort one another after finding the body of 45 year old Terry Roberts.

They used cell phone tracking data to find the body on their own.

"We've just been doing this on our own with no help from the Hickman County Sheriff's Department," says family friend Melodie Jackson.

As sheriff's deputies investigate the scene, there was clear frustration from the family and friends gathered.

I should correct this to say Terry Roberts is suspected of taking his own life, according to WZTV, who got their information from the Hickman County Sheriff's Department. Suicide is not known with a certainty at this point.

Family members told WZTV Terry Roberts was depressed. The sheriff says he recently lost his job, and was having problems with his girlfriend.

Very sad. My sympathy to his family and friends for their loss and all they've had to go through.

Can anyone tell me where the body is? I've called all local funeral homes and can't find him anywhere.
