Fans of Craig Morgan are absolutely devastated after learning that the country singer’s son, Jerry Greer, went missing after a ‘freak’ tubing accident on July 10. See the sweet messages of support being sent to Craig on Twitter here.
Jerry Greer, 19, went missing after an accident on the Tennessee River June 10, and the country music community is completely rocked by the news. As Craig Morgan and his family hold out hope that the 19-year-old will be found, fans have flooded Twitter with messages of love and support for the country music star.
The tragic accident took place on July 10, when Jerry was riding in an inner tube and collided with his friend, who was riding in a separate tube on Kentucky Lake, part of the Tennessee River. Although they were both reportedly wearing life vests, Jerry did not resurface after the crash.
There was no initial signs of drinking at the time of the collision, and it’s being considered a “freak accident,” according to TMZ. A massive search effort continues in a 5-10 acre area of the river on July 11, where the water could be up to 15 feet deep.
“It’s a big area that we’re looking at, so we’re going to try and review the statements that we have from our eyewitnesses and narrow that down today,” the boating accident investigator confirmed.
Craig’s family also confirmed that Jerry has gone missing, but added in a statement, “The family is grateful for everyone’s support and prayers and requests privacy during this difficult time.”
Jerry recently graduated from Dickson Country High school, and is just one of Craig and Karen Greer’s four children. No further updates on his accident or the status of the search have been given at this time. See how fans are reacting here:
