Posted: Updated:

MARION COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A search involving divers and cadaver dogs showed no trace of a Marion County man who has been missing since March 10th.

Sheriff "Bo" Burnett oversaw a search in the area near Roger Tant's residence on South Pittsburg Mountain. Deputies were assisted by a TBI team using trained cadaver dogs.

However, after an extensive search, no trace of Tant was found.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Department, his sister Connie Case came to the Marion County Justice Center on June 28 to make a report on a possible missing person.

She said she had been trying to get in touch with her brother without any success, so she went to his residence on Hewgley Road to speak to his wife and daughter.

Once there, she told authorities that Tant's wife claimed she hadn't seen her husband since March 9th or 10th.  All of the vehicles to the belong to the family were still at the residence and it appeared that he had not taken any of his personal belongings.

Case also said she had contracted several other family members and close friends and none of them had seen or heard from Tant since March.

Tant, 46, is 5'9", 195 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
