Murfreesboro Police say an altercation occurred just before 18-year-old Gavin Hitchings went missing.
Hitchings was last seen on July 2, 2021 after authorities say he had an altercation with someone and then stole that person’s car. Police spotted the teen driving the car and gave chase, but the pursuit didn’t last long because Hitchings wrecked the vehicle, according to MPD Public Information Officer Larry Flowers.
After the crash, Hitchings allegedly tried to carjack another vehicle, but failed. However, he was successful in eluding police who are not the only ones concerned about his safety today.
On July 3rd, Hitchings’ mother filed a missing person report with MPD.
Hitchings has seven active warrants including felony theft, felony evading, felony reckless endangerment, and carjacking. He has been entered into National Crime and Information Center (NCIC) database as missing.
