BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (WJHL) – The employer of missing Gatlinburg man, Justin Shults, confirmed Shults died during the airport bombing at Brussels Airport. Shults and his wife Stephanie went missing shortly after the terrorist attacks on Tuesday.

Shults employer, CLARCOR released this statement:

“We have learned today that Justin Shults died in the bombing at Brussels Airport.

We grieve with his family and continue to offer our support as they mourn this unimaginable loss. Justin has been an integral member of our global finance team since May of 2012 and he has lived with his wife, Stephanie, in Brussels since 2014. He will be remembered by his CLARCOR community as an intelligent, kind and loyal friend and employee. Justin will be greatly missed by those who knew him.

We do not have news yet about Justin’s wife, Stephanie, and ask that you keep her and her family in your prayers.”

Stephanie Schults’ car was recently found outside the Brussels airport where the bombings happened. Officials still do not know the her whereabouts.

The family of a Gatlinburg man who went missing after Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels said they were mistakenly informed that the missing couple had been found.

Sheila Shell says she got a call from the State Department at around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, telling them Justin and Stephanie Shults had been found in a hospital with unknown injuries, but they didn’t know the severity of the injuries or which hospital they were in. Levi Sutton, Justin Shults’ brother shared the news on Facebook, then Shell said they received a call from a social worker in Belgium, who is with Stephanie Shults’ mom, that said the family was given incorrect information.
