Update: According to Clark County Sheriff, Charles Egner has been found alive and well.
CLARK COUNTY, Ill. (WTHI) -- The search party out in Martinsville, Illinois has been working tirelessly since they got the call Wednesday. They're using all their resources to find this man. His name is Charles Egner. He's 66 years old and was last seen this past Wednesday afternoon. That's before he went out to go hunting.
Egner is from Florida. He was visiting the area to see family and hunt.
According to conservation police, Egner does suffer from dementia-related health issues.
This means they can't be exactly sure which way he could have gone or where he could be now.
Police say they started their search late Wednesday night, wrapped up around 2 am Thursday, and then got back out a few hours later to start looking again.
Search and rescue crews from all around the Wabash Valley are stepping up to help. That's something sergeant Brian McReynolds said is always helpful.
"There's a lot of help from the adjacent counties including the Vigo County search and rescue from Indiana," he said. "In the rural areas, and especially areas this large, to get the resources we need we have to have mutual aid and get assistance from other agencies. So, it's vitally important that we come together and help each other when these events happen." McReynolds said.
There were so many people out in the Martinsville Illinois area. Even just driving down the street there were countless searchers on the side of the road and in the surrounding woods.
They have dogs, horses, drones, ATVs, people on foot and much more to try and find Egner.
McReynolds said they can use help from you too.
"There's some unknowns of direction or where he would travel or where he would know to go. If anyone sees a hunter wondering the road or see someone on their property they don't believe belongs you know to call in," he said. "Or if they gave someone a ride that's a 60-year-old male who fits that description we would like to be called immediately."
Mcreynolds said as of right now they are going to continue to look for Egner. He said they have some bodies of water around the are they are going to start looking in as well.
