Community Raises $16,000 To Aid Search For Hunters

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky community has raised
$16,000 to help search efforts for two missing teenage duck hunters.

WPSD-TV in Paducah reports the money was raised at a chili supper Monday night at Mayfield High School. The station said the supper was a way to thank volunteers helping with the search and to raise money to keep the effort going.

Crews returned to Kentucky Lake Tuesday to search for 18-year-old McKenzie Stanley and 17-year-old Jacob Scott. They have been missing for more than a week since their boat took on water during a sudden storm.

The tragedy claimed the life of 18-year-old Trevor Williams. A fourth hunter in the boat, Tyler Heathcott, was rescued near shore.
