Teen’s body found at bottom of Sale Creek bluff

SALE CREEK, Tennessee (WDEF) – A teenager’s body was found Wednesday morning at the bottom of a bluff in Sale Creek off Leggett Road.

The 15 year old male was reported missing last night by his parents after failing to return from the Cumberland Trail.

And crews had been searching for him through the night.

Hamilton County detectives spent the morning on the scene investigating the circumstances of the death.

They are not releasing the teens identity or anything else about the case at this point.

But the principal at Soddy Daisy High School released this statement this morning.

A tragedy affected our Soddy Daisy High School family.
As you may have heard, a 10th grade student was found early this morning. Law enforcement tells
us he was found near a bluff on the Cumberland Trail.
We have extra support staff available to our student body today, and will keep the extra counselors in place as long as they are needed.
Please keep our school family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,
Principal Steve Henry
