Lake Bottom Search For Missing Dad Continues

By  | 

Lincoln County divers and search crews returned to Cedar Creek Lake Thursday for the second day in a row to search for Tim Harker.

The 35-year-old Crab Orchard man went missing Tuesday night. Neighbors say they last saw him on a bridge near the lake walking his dog. Late Tuesday night the dog returned home dragging its leash, Harker has never returned.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, along with county emergency managment crews and a diving team from Pulaski County have been combing the water for hours looking for Harker. They haven't found many clues, except for a ball cap believed to be Harkers.

Sheriff Curt Folger says a ground search will begin Thursday evening and the water search will continue. If Harker is not found near the lake tonight, authorities are expected to begin pursuing other investigative leads.
