Ground Search Called Off For Missing Man

The ground search for a missing East Lake Hills man was called off Friday after about thirty search-and-rescue volunteers, firefighters and Sheriff's deputies searched a 500-acre area Thursday without result.

Family members reported Judge Will, 39, went outside the residence north of Vian and east of Lake Tenkiller at about 1 a.m. Sunday to take a cell phone call.  He has not been seen since.  His father reported him missing Tuesday, Sheriff Ron Lockhart said.

However, the authorities are not giving up.  Steve Rutherford, Sequoyah County Emergency Manage- ment Director, was distributing flyers with Will's photo in the East Lake Hills area on Friday morning.

Rutherford said, "At this point we are not going to continue the ground search.  We are posting and putting out flyers.  We covered a lot of ground yesterday."
