Crews will be back out Saturday morning on the Kentucky River in Franklin County to continue searching for a missing man.

Family members at the scene said Friday they believe Will Rawlings, 26, who works at Buffalo Trace Distillery as a third shift security guard, was fishing near the distillery when he slipped into the river.

Rawlings' parents went to look for him when he didn't come home. They found his car around 3 a.m. Friday and contacted police.

Deputies did find an area where they think Rawlings slipped into the river. They also recovered a flashlight in the water.

"We're going to unturn every stone until we bring him home," said Franklin Co. Sheriff Pat Melton. "It may - if he did go in the water - then it may take some time to find him. If he's not, then we're still using technology and we're doing our best to track him down if he's not here."
