Shannon County Man Still Missing

BUNKER — Search par­ties were still looking Mon­day, Aug. 7, for an elderly man with Alzheimers who walked away from his home south of Bunker in Shannon County Monday evening, July 31.

According to an official with the Shannon Coun­ty Sheriff’s Department, 76-year-old Cleveland Rich­ardson wondered from his home on ‘P’ Highway in the northeastern corner of Shan­non County between 6 and 7 o’clock Monday night.

Richardson was last seen near the area of the Doe Run Company Sweetwater Mine.

He was last seen wearing green plaid pajama pants, a green pullover shirt, black shoes and a belt.

The Shannon County Sher­iff’s Department, with the help of the Reynolds County Sheriff’s Department and multiple other agencies from the area and around the state have conducted an extensive search which has turned up one shoe and a few other signs which lead the search­ers to believe the lost man may yet be found.
