HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) Update: 5:30 p.m., March 19

Crews are continuing to search for a Perry County man who has been missing for more than a month.

Danny "Tin-Can" Napier is believed to have fallen into the North Fork of the Kentucky River.

While some weather conditions have hindered rescue teams, that does not stop dozens of volunteers to help each search.

"Every day that we are doing something, we've had several of our fire departments involved across Perry County and we have covered a lot of ground," said Perry County Emergency Director Jerry Stacy.

Stacy said even crews from the Floyd County Rescue Squad and crews from Belfry have helped in the search.

He said hopefully in the near future, dogs will be brought in to help with the search.

Crews were back out in Perry County searching for Danny Tin-Can Napier who has been missing for close to a month.

Crews with the Hazard Fire Department, Perry County Emergency Management, the Vicco Sassafrass Volunteer Fire Department, and the Kentucky Search Dog Association were teaming up in the search.

"The type of dogs we have this is what they're trained in, you know, locating bodies," said Emergency Management Director Jerry Stacy.

The group has not searched for the past week because of the weather, but they resumed Wednesday and plan to search for as long as they could.

"So we're just resuming what we started," said Stacy.
