Telfair County -- Search efforts continued Wednesday to find any clue leading to where 16-year-old Thomas T. J. Spell might be.

Spell and two other 17-year-olds went out to Boney Ferry Landing Friday night. "They said they were going out to ride four wheelers, but they really didn't say where they were going, said T. J.'s father, Bruce Spell.

After midnight the other two went to get food, leaving T. J. behind to watch their things. "They said when they returned they noticed the other vehicle gone. At that time they assumed he had left, but later discovered he hadn't," said Telfair Sheriff, Jimmie Williamson.

"They say that they were going to the store, but they left my son down here all by himself. He is only 16 years old," said Spell.

When they got back to Fitzgerald and saw Thomas was still missing, they called police. "We immediately began to search. About one 1:00 PM Sunday we did locate a vehicle in the river, a 1995 X-90 Suzuki. There was no one in it," said Williamson. 

"We've had boats out here almost everyday. We've had dogs that were able to sniff into the river. We've had a blood hound one day to search the area.

We've also had Georgia State Patrol and DNR helicopters that flew over the area. Right now we don't see any evidence that there was foul play."

And now his family and friends just want answers. "I ain't giving up no way. I just want somebody to come forward or for the authorities to go out and find him," said Spell.

But until than the search continues. Thomas T. J. Spell is around six-feet-tall and weighs about 140 pounds. T. J. has dirty blond hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with any information on Thomas Spell's location are asked to call the Telfair Sheriff Department at 229-868-6621.
