Gary Wayt, 39, was reported missing on Monday.

It was noted that he drives a gray 2009 Nissan Rogue SUV with Indiana license plates.

Portwood is claimed to be "distraught" by sources close to the MTV personality just weeks after the couple reportedly got engaged. Wayt recently made his Teen Mom debut when the reality star introduced her new love to the cast via Zoom.

An incident report obtained by RadarOnline.com notes that Wayt, 39, was last seen on Twin Oak Ave at a hotel/motel in Bryson City, NC, where they were seemingly staying during a visit.

The case is still active and anyone with information is asked to call 828-488-2196 and ask for Chief Robinson or Asst. Chief Dover.
