LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Yard signs are being put up all over the area to try and find a missing southern Indiana teen.
Last month, we told you that 19-year-old Ethan H. Bennett had not been seen or heard from since Sept. 11, at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Friends are posting hundreds of signs near interstates and off of busy roads hoping someone has seen him.
His father Tony Bennett begged him to come home: "If there's anything you need, anything you want, any help I can get you, please let me know. If you can't come to me I'll come to you. Just know that your family loves you very much."
Bennett's parents contacted the sheriff's office after a caretaker of the family's property noticed he was gone. The family's 2001 silver Jaguar is also missing. The license plate on the vehicle is an Indiana tag with the designation, "RJU784."
Bennett is a white male, 6'-2" tall, with brown hair and blue eyes, weighing 176 lbs. He was last seen driving his parents' Jaguar in the Sellersburg, Ind. area.
"The Bennetts' stated that this type of conduct is very out of character for their son, and both are very concerned for his safety and well being," the sheriff's office states.
The teen's parents say he's currently not in enrolled in school and is having a hard time finding a job. They also say they're worried about his state of mind. "Anytime someone would disappear without any contact," Tony Bennett says, "when you have a very large family and friends it just leads you to wonder."
"We've gotten a few tips as far as people seeing Ethan...maybe even seeing the car, but nothing that we've been able to firm up yet," says Lt. Randy Burton, with Clark County Sheriff's Department.
That's still enough to give the family and friends of 19 year old Ethan Bennett hope.
Lt. Burton says, "There were some tips that maybe he was down around the Ft. Knox...that area down around Dixie Highway."
That's what prompted family members to create these signs. "And they went this past weekend...friends and family...put 'em around through southern Indiana throughout Louisville in an attempt that somebody will see the signs and the pictures and help bring Ethan back home," says Lt. Burton.
Family members have also created a facebook page to help spread the word. Meanwhile, it has been nearly a month...but there's still hope.
And if he is out there somewhere, there's also speculation about why Bennett might be reluctant to come home.
Lt. Burton says, "They're worried about maybe the media attention and all the signs and all the press it's getting that maybe he is embarrassed now to come back but you know regardless...we just want to make sure he's all right."
If anyone has any information, they are asked to call the Clark County Sheriff's Office at (812) 246-6996, or call the anonymous tip line at (812) 280-2276.
