Roane County deputies are searching for a man they said gave them false information about a shooting.

Last month, Vincent Thompson told deputies somebody had shot him in the leg with a crossbow arrow on Peter's Cave Road in Spencer.

Deputies said through the course of the investigation, they now believe the incident did not happen as Thompson told them.

Thompson is charged with making a false report of an emergency incident. Anybody who knows where Thompson is should call the Roane County Sheriff's Office at (304) 927-3410.
