Search Continues For Missing Lewis County Man

Search Continues For Missing Lewis County Man

Posted: Updated:

Kenneth McCall's friends and family headed into the woods again Monday in hopes of finding him, but it was no easy task.

"They're brutal, they're not nice to walk in. It's dangerous, there's cliffs, there's holes, a lot of downed trees. It's really a mess," said A.J. McCall, Kenneth's father.

McCall has been missing since early Tuesday morning. The 24 year old was last seen walking with his girlfriend on Tidd Toad in the town of Diana.

Now, 2 women who are members of a search and rescue team based in the Poconos are joining in the search. The women recently moved to Lowville and decided to help out when they heard about the search.

"My finance was at work and one of her co-workers was discussing it and she said, 'Hey, we do this in the Poconos, let's see if we can get approval from the team,'" said Melissa Headen, vice president of Pocono Search and Rescue.

The women brought their search dog, which can find a specific scent and follow it. But the team wasn't having any luck.

"Because so much time has lapsed, it's been about a week, plus we've had quite a few rain storms, so his ability to track where Kenny went is kind of, it's not really probable," said Headen.

Volunteers spent the day driving around different roads and searching the woods again. Even though it's been 6 days of searching, they aren't giving up.

"This is going to have a good ending. We just have to keep working at it," said Stacie Hartshorn, a family friend.

"You don't give up on your kids until we know where he is. The woods were the last place he was found, so as a parent I feel like I'm doing something by going into the woods and just walking and calling his name," said A.J. McCall.

If anyone has seen Kenneth, you're asked to call the Lewis County Sheriff's Office at 315-376-3511.
