OLIVE BRANCH, MS (WMC-TV) - It has been nearly two weeks since an Olive Branch father-to-be disappeared.

This should be a happy time for Sarah Albritton, who is expecting her first child next week. Instead, her days are spent full of worry and concern for her missing husband, Tyler, who was last seen on September 14th.

"We just haven't heard from him since," she said. "He's made no phone calls. Tyler's not used his credit card. He's gone. He's vanished. We're desperate to find him."

Albritton said her husband follows a regular routine, and is a full time student at Northwest Mississippi Community College in DeSoto County in addition to working full time.

"For Tyler to just go missing, its unusual," she said. "We don't know what could have happened."

Daniel's father, Joe Albritton, says community support has been overwhelming, from both friends and strangers alike.

"I would like to have a special thanks for them, and especially the support we're getting from the Olive Branch Police Department," he said.

Sarah is due to give birth next Monday, but it won't be complete without Tyler.

"I'm sorry, I just need him home for this baby to be born," she said.

Tyler, an avid hunter, drives a red, two door 2000 Chevy Silverado.  The family hopes that with hunting season around the corner, someone will see his vehicle and report it to the police.

If you have any information that might help find him, contact the Olive Branch Police Department.
