Search Unsuccessful, More Information Needed

The official search for a missing man at Lake Tenkiller has been called off for the time being.

“We need more information,” said Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart Friday morning.

The search for Matthew Scott Fagan began on Tuesday. Fagan was last seen hiking near Cato Creek in the Tenkiller area. Fagan was reportedly hiking with three other individuals and decided to go back to the vehicle. When his friends returned to the vehicle he could not be located. It is possible that Fagan was picked up by a friend. No one has heard from him.

The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Department, Sequoyah County Emergency Management, Blackgum Fire and Rescue, and the new Sequoyah County Mounted Search and Rescue Team have participated in the search.

Lockhart said Friday morning, “We have searched everywhere we can and have called off the search for today.”

The search may resume if new information warrants it. If anyone has information on Fagan or his whereabouts please contact the sheriff’s office at 918-775-9156.
