If you’re missing a FedEx package this week, try a ditch in Blount County.
Late Wednesday afternoon, the Blount County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook that its deputies had discovered hundreds of FedEx packages tossed into a ravine near Hayden.
Blount County Sheriff Mark Moon told media that FedEx officials also drove to the scene and inspected the boxes and determined that there were “between 300 and 400” apparently undelivered packages in the ravine.
“FedEx has sent multiple trucks and drivers from all over the South and will begin loading the packages as soon as the sun comes up,” Moon wrote on Facebook. “I will have a deputy on scene until the work is complete.”
Moon said FedEx employees would carry the packages out, scan them and determine where they are supposed to go. Once the packages are scanned, the company should have a better idea of how they ended up in the ravine, Moon said.
