Sheriff Calls Off Search for Missing Hunter
10 December 2003
LEWISTOWN _ The Fergus County sheriff's office has
suspended the ground search for a missing Minnesota man who apparently
became lost while hunting in the Missouri River Breaks.
Fergus County Sheriff Tom Killham said bad weather and the
extremely rugged terrain of the area prompted his office to suspend the
search for 52-year-old Allen Theis of Eden Valley, Minn.
Heavy snow and gumbo mud had made the area too treacherous
to continue the search for now, he said. "I'm just not going to ask people
to go down into that," he said Monday.
Killham said smaller searches may resume once conditions
improve, and officials still planned occasional flyovers to see if they can
Theis was last seen two weeks ago.
