Hoping that more activity and traffic over the holiday weekend will aid in the effort, officials Saturday scaled back on the search for Doctor John Lyles. The Calvert City optometrist was last seen in the area close to the Canal Campground earlier this week.
According to an Associated Press report, emergency officials in Livingston County say crews of emergency personnel and volunteers have searched 3,764 square acres and 12 miles of shoreline twice over the last three days in an attempt to find the missing 60-year old man.
Officials note that Lyles went missing without medication that is described as being vital to his health. The report says the search effort on Saturday was limited to emergency responders.
