UPDATE: Wednesday, April 3: Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, officials are conducting a search for Sebastian in the Long Hollow Pike area Wednesday.

“Law enforcement agencies are currently conducting another thorough search in the Long Hollow Pike area in reference to the disappearance of Sebastian Rogers, a young member of our community. Despite exhaustive efforts, there are no new leads or evidence to indicate the search will be immediately fruitful. However, we are committed to leaving no stone unturned in our mission to locate Sebastian and bring him home safely,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.

The Sheriff’s Office also stated that the eyeglasses recently found are not related to Sebastian Rogers.

UPDATE: Tuesday, April 2: Sumner County Chief Deputy Eric Craddock and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesperson Susan Niland addressed the media Tuesday to answer questions in the ongoing efforts in the search for Sebastian Rogers.

Officials said they have not forgotten about Sebastian and they are still pursuing all avenues in the search.

“At this point, there’s no evidence that there’s a criminal element involved, but we’re keeping options open,” Niland said.

Chief Deputy Craddock also added that glasses were found during the search. Authorities have not confirmed if they belonged to Sebastian.

UPDATE: Friday, March 29: The United Cajun Navy’s search on Friday for Sebastian has been called off due to increasing security concerns.

“We will continue to evaluate the situation and support ongoing local efforts in the mean time. This does not mean the search is over,” the UNC stated on Facebook Friday.

The United Cajun Navy also posted the following statement Friday:

“Anyone who deliberately impedes the investigation and search for Sebastian Rogers will automatically be considered a person of interest, especially when we know those individuals have extensive criminal records. We are finalizing some intel that we will be turning over to law enforcement, and then we will begin the process of exposing those who actively tried to stop this search. These people are dangerous criminals and the good people in and around Sumner County have a right to know about the evil embedded in their community.

This is far from our first rodeo. We are honored to have been embraced by prominent members of this community, law enforcement, and elected officials. Just because a handful of mentally ill people with too much free time get emboldened by online keyboard warriors, does not mean we will ever stray from our mission. We cannot be scared, we cannot be intimidated, we cannot be told where to go or when to leave. We have had plenty of these violent types slapped with restraining orders, thrown in jail, fired from their jobs, and many other consequences.

To those who threatened, attacked, or threatened to attack: we have your voices recorded. We have you on surveillance videos. We have your vehicle information. We have your full arrest records. You will soon learn what happens when attacking the REAL Cajun Navy becomes more important to you than finding a missing child.”

UPDATE: Friday, March 29: The TBI and Sumner County Sheriff’s Office met with Sebastian Rogers’s biological parents on Thursday. The cause and details of the meeting has not been released to the public at this time.
