Search teams look for missing Harlan Co. man

HARLAN CO., Ky. (WYMT) - Family and friends are searching for a man that has been missing since Sunday night.

"We're searching back roads or we're looking over hills, even if he wrecked or something", said North's sister Michelle Brock.

Tyler North was last seen in his truck leaving a family member's home in Leslie County.

The family is worried he may have gotten into a car crash Sunday night.

More than 60 people have split up into groups to search for him Wednesday between Leslie County and his home in Harlan County.

"I was looking for tracks but I didn't find much with it raining", said Mitchell York Jr. who was searching the area for North. "But I went down every four-wheeler road that I could see that trucks could go down. Didn't see anything."

They are searching for any signs of North or his 2003 Gray Dodge Dakota.

Family members are asking for the public's help, including anyone who may have access to a drone.

"If they wanted to come be a part of it and they have a drone, bring it. The more the merrier. He's a son, he's a father, he's a brother. And we need him home", said North's sister Samantha Perry.

Anyone with information about North's whereabouts is asked to call Kentucky State Police Post 13 at 606-435-6069.

Anyone who would like to volunteer and help search for North can contact Michelle Brock on Facebook or join the Facebook page, Help Find Tyler North.
