CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

UPDATE: A Chattanooga family is desperate to find their loved one, organizing search parties for the man who hasn't been seen in nearly a week.

Thirty-three-year-old Justin Trimble was last seen near Tunnel Boulevard and Lightfoot Mill Road.

More than a hundred of Justin Trimble’s family members and friends spent Friday scouring Airport Road in hopes of finding the father of three.

“There isn't going to be a rock unturned, we're going to look everywhere and anywhere we think he maybe or where anybody may have seen him - we're going there. Everywhere and we're not stopping,” Rasheda Trimble, Justin’s wife said.

Rasheda said nothing was out of the ordinary when her husband left home Saturday.

"Just like every other time he left morning noon or night he just kissed me and his daughters and said I love y'all and I’ll be back,” Trimble said.

However, that night Justin didn't come home. Now family members are actively looking for clues, while police follow up on leads.

“We just want him to come home, come home we need some kind of closure we just need to know where he is we got three kids to raise and they need their father,” Trimble said.

Accounts as to when Justin was last seen and where conflict, but all agree Justin was driving this 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle and seen wearing blue shorts and a white tank top.

That desperation to find Justin drove more than 100 people to search Shallowford road Thursday night. The search ended when a relative, derrick bush, collided with another vehicle. Bush is now in critical condition at Erlanger.

It’s a difficult time the entire family, which also lost 17-year-old Ladarious Bush in a drive by shooting in April.

Rasheda Trimble says the hardest part is explaining it all to her kids.

"They’re not doing good. They just want their dad back like the rest of us," she explained.

A candle light prayer service is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Saturday on Shallowford road. Anyone with information about Justin Trimble’s whereabouts is asked to contact Chattanooga police.
