Nashville family searches for answers in missing person case

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - The family of 20-year-old Tajuandre Owens is left with many questions and few answers.  

According to a Metro police report, it was back on July 1 that Owens was last seen in the Nashville area.  

"We just want him to come home," his aunt, Tanya Jennings, said.  

Owens also goes by the nickname "T.O."  

Family members told News 2 that he loved people and sports. 

According to the missing person's report, Owens was last seen at the Rothwood Apartments in Madison where he stayed with a friend.  

"It's painful. We're trying to stay positive as much as we can," said his cousin, D'Adria Pernell. 

Pernell said Owens had been staying full-time with her and his aunt. She also said Owens has never tried to run away. 

"Somebody would've heard something from him. He keeps in touch with all of us," said Pernell.  

On Tuesday, Owens friends and family gathered to hand out their third round of flyers.  

"Answers, that's all we want. Answers," said Pernell.  

Metro police told News 2 that at this time they're not sure whether to suspect foul play or something else.
