It has been two months since anyone has seen or heard from 27-year-old Curtis Tyler and there are still no clues as to his whereabouts.

Tyler was last seen on Saturday, June 30, at Barker's Trailer Park off of Christie Street in Dyersburg. His family reported him missing the following Tuesday after not being in contact with him for several days.

Dyersburg Police Capt. Steve Isbell stated investigators continue to work the case as a missing-person case.

"The investigation continues with investigators following up on all leads," said Isbell. "We continue to ask the public for assistance with information as this remains an active investigation."

Curtis Tyler's mother, Carol Tyler, said she is worried about her son and believes something may have happened to him because it is not like him to go this long and not contact his family.

"There is a lot of talk going around and it's not good," said Carol Tyler. "We've been from one end of this county to the other and all of the counties around. We have been looking in ditches and fields ... you name it."

Curtis Tyler's father has been looking for his son and wishes they had an approximate area in which they could focus their efforts.

"If we could just get an area to look in, I'll find him," said Tony Tyler. "It's like looking for a needle in a haystack, but this haystack is a 20-acre field with 30 haystacks in it."

Judy Hutching, Curtis Tyler's grandmother, said it is frustrating not knowing what happened to her grandson. She added somebody knows something because it is unlike him to just disappear without telling anybody.

"This is not like Curtis," said Hutching. "He was a momma's boy and he wouldn't run off. I knew something was wrong when he didn't call."

She says they will continue in their search until Curtis Tyler is found and they hope that day comes soon.

"We'll never give up hope in finding him," said Hutching.

Curtis Tyler's family is offering a $4,000 reward for information on his whereabouts. He is described as 27 years old, 6 feet tall, 165 pounds, brown hair, and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos, including one on his neck.

Anyone with information about Curtis Tyler's whereabouts or has recently seen him is asked to call the Dyersburg Police Department at 731-285-1212 or Crime Stoppers at 731-285-TIPS.
