Crews were searching by land and air Friday night for a Letcher County man who has been missing since Wednesday.

The entire search and rescue squad, helicopters and deputies looked for Drad Fleming who never showed up to his uncle's funeral.

Selina Fleming has not seen or heard from her dad Drad Fleming for more than one day.

"Sunday night my uncle died. It was his uncle, my great uncle, and he took it really hard. And we're afraid this has a lot of why he is missing right now," said Selina Fleming.

He has not contacted anybody, and she says his phone is now turned off.

"This is not like him. He never misses work, he never not calls. He's always on the phone with somebody," said Selina Fleming.

The family last saw Drad Fleming at the Neon Church of Christ on Wednesday at his uncle's visitation, but when he didn't show up for the funeral the family knew something was wrong.

The family is searching day and night for Drad Fleming.

All his daughter wants is to see her dad's face and to know that he is okay.

Crews are specifically looking for Fleming's 2011 red Silverado truck.

If you have any information you should contact the sheriff's office in Letcher County.
