The search continues for a missing veteran from Franklin.

Jared Chavis went missing in Houston a year ago.

Today, family and friends of Chavis gathered at Franklin High School to release balloons in honor of his 21st birthday.

“He has a nine-month-old son who’s going to ask questions: ‘Where’s my dad?’ We want to make sure he has those answers, so we just continue to push the story, find Jared, bring him home, and we could go on with our lives,” said Chavis’ father, Willie Smith.
