Crews search flood waters for missing man

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

 Crews are actively searching the flood waters in western Davidson County Thursday morning for the body of a missing man.

The missing man is believed to be 39-year-old Danny Tomlinson, of Pegram.

Tomlinson was last seen in his car early Sunday morning on Newsom Station Road near Buffalo Road off Highway 70 in the Bellevue area.

The car was found in a flooded section of Newsom Station Road Tuesday afternoon.

Tomlinson is one of two persons missing in Davidson County.

Eighteen-year-old Daniel Alexander Brown was last seen Sunday evening while tubing in Mill Creek.  His friends reported that the swift current slammed Brown into a bridge pillar and then down stream.

Neither man has been located.  The death toll in Tennessee stands at nine.

As of 9 a.m. Thursday, the Cumberland River was at 42.2 feet, down from 51.8 feet when the river crested Monday evening.

Flows will remain high as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues to release water from the dams on Old Hickory and Percy Priest lakes to protect the integrity of the dams.

The releases are not expected to lead to additional rises on the Cumberland River.

Experts expect the river to be below flood level, or below 40 feet, by the end of the week.
