The search is continuing for 76 year old Dale Hunter who has been missing from his home on Paris Mountain in Greenville County.

The sheriff’s office released this update on the search Monday evening.

Deputies initiated a search of Mr. Hunter after he was reported missing on Thursday, April 5th, at approximately 11:30am.  Since Thursday, we have had 172 personnel from various agencies including the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, Piedmont Park F.D., Duncan Chapel F.D., S.C. Foothills Search and Rescue, Greenville County Emergency Management, SLED, S.C. Taskforce 6, S.C. Parks Recreation and Tourism, Greenville County E.M.S., Greenville Emergency Response Team, Berea F.D., Pickens County Emergency Management and the S.C. Highway Patrol involved in the search efforts.  We have also utilized numerous dog teams, as well as aircraft and drones to assist in the effort.

Roughly 1,384 man-hours have been dedicated to the search and rescue of Mr. Hunter and we are extremely grateful to all assisting agencies/departments for all of their hard work.  We are also extremely appreciative to the media in your coverage on this matter.

Moving forward, a number of assisting agencies will resume search efforts tomorrow in the residential areas of Altamont Road.  As of now, we have sufficient personnel for the search and do not need volunteers from the public.  We do ask, that residents in the area continue checking their property for the Mr. Hunter.  We also ask that they check their video surveillance systems from the time he was reported missing.  If anyone has a possible sighting of Dale we ask that they call 911 and keep him in sight.  We ask that anyone that is uncomfortable calling 911 to call Crime-Stoppers of Greenville at 23-Crime, where they can remain anonymous.  We also ask that you continue to share this information as visitors may have been in the area during Spring break.
