CASE #: 17-001402
On Tuesday, January 24, 2017, Taylor Dawn Powell was located safe and sound at an apartment complex in the Downtown Kingsport area. She has since been removed from N.C.I.C. and is no longer considered missing or endangered.

As previously released:

On the afternoon of January 20, 2017, Taylor Dawn Powell was reported as a missing person to the Kingsport Police Department by her mother. Ms. Powell was last seen five days ago on the evening of January 15, 2017 at her mother’s house, located in the 300 block of Carver Street in Kingsport. She left with an unknown acquaintance traveling in a red Jeep.

Her mother indicated that it is out of character for her to stay out of touch for this long. Ms. Powell is currently homeless, but is known to frequent the Downtown Kingsport area. Due to some undisclosed personal information relayed to the Kingsport Police Department, there is reason to be concerned for her general welfare and overall safety.

Ms. Powell is described as a 22 year old white female adult. She has blonde hair and blue eyes. She is approximately 5 feet 4 inches in heights and weighs roughly 120 pounds. A recent photography is included in this release.

She has been entered into the National Crime Information Center (N.C.I.C.) database as a missing endangered person. Anyone who has any information regarding her current whereabouts is asked to promptly contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
