    Details of Disappearance

    Tant was last seen at his home in the 400 block of Hawgley Road in South Pittsburg, Tennessee on March 10, 2012. He has never been heard from again and left his vehicles and all personal belongings behind at home. His sister reported him missing on June 28, after she tried to contact him for weeks without any success. Tant was unemployed at the time of his disappearance and raised game chickens on his property, and he left without making arrangements for the animals' care. There is some evidence that he was involved in cock-fighting, which is a misdemeanor in Tennessee. Little information is available in Tant's case.
