Posted: Updated:

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office is following up on leads into the disappearance of a missing teenager.

Cameron Gardner McGlothan,19, was last seen by his mother March 5 at 10 p.m. at the family home in the Highland Lakes subdivision.

Shelby County Sheriff investigators believe McGlothan left home willingly and was likely picked up by a friend in a red SUV.

"It's very sad because I wasn't even aware that we had a missing teen in this neighborhood. So I'm glad that I had the opportunity to look at this [flyer with teen's picture]," said Liz Ridley, who lives nearby.

Sgt.. Russell Bedsole says the leads are moving in slowly, and they're still relying on the public's help to find McGlothan.

The news of McGlothan's disappearance is starting to circulate at the teens former high school. Chelsea High School student, Namreta Kriki says a friend told her about her former classmates disappearance. 

"I just found out in the library that he was missing. I thought she was joking around, but it was like serious," Kriki said.

Investigators say the teen doesn't have a history of leaving without telling someone and it's highly unusual for him to be gone this long.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, call the Shelby County Sheriff's Office at 205-669-4181.
