It was another day without answers Monday for the family of 62-year old Hanley Peavler. He was last seen Friday, going to the Kentucky River in Frankfort to spend the night on his boat.
Loren Eppinghoff, Peavler's granddaughter, says "he was going to spend Friday night on his boat, as he always does." She says Peavler's wife became worried when he didn't call Saturday morning to check in. She started calling his cell phone, which was eventually answered by a person on the boat dock, who told Peavler's wife something seemed to be wrong.
Four boats searched the river Monday for any sign of Peavler. They began searching for his body Saturday and also looked on Sunday. So far, there's been no sign of him. Peavler's granddaughter says they believe he fell in because his cell phone, wallet and glasses were still at the dock.
Eppinghoff thanked everyone who has searched for Peavler this weekend and today, and asked for help from anyone who's available.
Police say they don't suspect foul play in Peavler's disappearance.
