No new signs in search for man

SoVaNow.com / December 23, 2013


Rescuers contend with wet weather as efforts to find 61-year-old continue

Amid a heavy downpour, search efforts continued Sunday afternoon for James Oliver Brown, a 61 year old Clover-area man who has been missing since Thanksgiving.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark reported that no signs had been found to lead search personnel to the missing man.

“We’re still searching a wide radius around Neal’s Corner and Brown’s Trail,” Clark said, noting that search crews had just come in to get some lunch. He said they were soaked by the heavy showers that hit the community on Sunday morning.

Some 75 search and rescue personnel also worked all day Saturday, with some coming from as far away as Virginia Beach and the Shenandoah Valley to help.

Many of those searchers, along with local volunteers, had stayed overnight, hoping to be more successful on Sunday.

“We certainly appreciate all the help we’ve received from these people, but as of yet we have nothing new to report,” Clark said.

Brown, who is described as being six feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds, was last seen on Thanksgiving Day walking in the area of Neal’s Corner Road in Clover.

Hhe lived alone, but in close proximity to other family members, according to authorities.
