Missing hunter sought in SE Kansas

December 7, 2011

ALTOONA, Kan. (AP) - Officials in a southeastern Kansas county have called off their search for a 44-year-old man missing since late last week.

But volunteers continue looking on their own for Altoona resident Kennon Landry, whose wrecked truck was discovered Friday by an oil worker near a river in Wilson County. KOAM-TV reports Landry had been hunting and called his fiancee to say he was on his way home, but he never arrived.

The Chanute Tribune reports the Wilson County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday the official search was over. Personnel from the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Department of Parks and Wildlife and a water rescue team scoured about 20 square miles for any sign of Landry.

Volunteers on horses and ATV's are continuing to look for the missing man.
