“As soon as we have availability, (the canines) can help us scan the general area,” said Wood. “At this time, we are still waiting and searching and trying to see if we have any evidence or clues that can help us locate Mr. Beach.”
Wood said there are no circumstances to suggest that Beach is in any imminent danger, no threats made against him or evidence of foul play.
“We’ll continue to work and follow up leads,” he said. “If anyone in the Elihu-Cabin Hollow area saw anybody that fits the description of (John Beach) or seemed unusual or out of place, please give the sheriff’s department a call (at 606-678-5145).”
Polly noted that her brother John Beach is about 5-foot-6, 140 pounds, thin build, with strawberry blonde hair shaped in a sort of “faux hawk” style. He had on only a pair of blue jeans and shoes when he went missing, given that he had left his shirt behind.
“I figure he went out into those woods and something happened to him — there are acres out in those woods,” she said. “I’m so worried.”
