GCSO still searching for Cantrell with public’s support


ELLIJAY, Ga. – Over two weeks have passed since the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office first posted their request for the public’s help in locating Terry Christopher “TC” Cantrell and nearly a month since he was last seen.

Authorities say Cantrell was last seen between Friday evening, June 4, 2021 and early Saturday, June 5, 2021 reportedly walking on foot from Clay Top Drive in the area of Hudson Martin Road and Highway 52 East.

Their post stated that Search and Rescue teams along with Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office have searched wooded areas via both ground and air surrounding “Postell Lake” off of Rackley Road/Hudson Martin Road for several days since the report was filed.

According to close friends, Terry is known to frequent camp sites and fishing holes in the Rackley Road area.

Additional support has come in and numerous people have joined the search, sharing information about Cantrell and looking to aid in finding him. Some have said the situation is highly abnormal as he would never leave his mother who has health issues.

Due to the length of time since his disappearance, it may be difficult to recall details, but the Sheriff’s Office is still asking for any and all help in locating Cantrell or any information on possible locations or sightings. Cantrell is 49 years old, six feet tall, 175 pounds, bald with blue eyes.

GCSO is not giving up as they have repeatedly posted every week as they continue their search and continue to ask for the public’s help in that search. If you have any information leading to the whereabouts of Terry Cantrell, please contact Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office Detective Lessie Sippel at 706-635-4646 or Gilmer 911 at 706-635-8911 after business hours.
