Britney Anderson Watson, a Tennessee woman, and mother-of-two has been missing for more than eight days. Her ex-husband, Kevin Watson, has been listed as a person of interest and may be suicidal, authorities said.
Britney’s disappearance was announced by the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, January 15. The 34-year-old was last seen on January 7, between 12 pm and 1 pm at 3317 Hillville Loop. At the time of her disappearance, she was seen wearing jeans and a gray hoodie at that time.

According to Sheriff Billy Garrett Jr, authorities located Kevin’s vehicle in the area of Big Eddy lake north of Brownsville and were “searching the immediate area around it.” Authorities are believed to “have evidence that indicates” Kevin may be armed. Officials have asked people to avoid the area as search dogs aided in the search mission in the immediate area around where his car was found.
Britney and Kevin faced some “domestic issues,” after they tried to get back together following their divorce about four years ago, the sheriff reportedly said. “It’s a tragic situation here, a domestic situation,” Garrett said, adding, “We need to keep in mind that there are two small children in this situation and pray for them and their family.”

“Britney was Britney. She was spontaneous. She was wild. She was crazy. She loved her kids. She loved her family. She’d do anything for you. She didn’t deserve this,” a woman, claiming to be Britney’s cousin, said.
On January 7, Britney was reportedly at a motel in Jackson. No one knows why she was there.

The police are fairly certain that they will get a hold of Kevin. “We will probably be able to locate him because, as I said, we found the truck, we found the note, and we have tracking dogs out there that’s going to help us search the area. We are also using deputies on foot and a drone unit,” an official told WBBJ.
