Country musician Craig Morgan and his wife Karen Greer are facing a nightmare no parent ever imagines having to endure. Their son Jerry Greer went missing yesterday (July 10) following a boating accident.
The 19-year old recently graduated high school, and was out tubing with friends on Kentucky Lake in Humphreys County, Tennessee when he and another friend fell into the water, according to The Tennessean. Although he was wearing a life jacket at the time, Jerry did not come up for air. Local officials have initiated recovery efforts to find him that same day and those efforts continue still.
Jerry is one of Morgan’s four children. He and Karen request privacy during this time, but thank everyone for their support.
Update 4:45pm ET
The Tennessean reports a candlelight vigil for Greer will be held at 8pm at the Dickson County High School stadium.
