New personal items belonging to Kyle Hancock have been found, but the St. Thomas, Ont. man remains missing since early August.
In the past two weeks, the bike helmet he wore was discovered in a Central Elgin cornfield. The next day, approximately 2,000 metres west, his cell phone was located in a field at the corner of Fairview Avenue and Southdale Line in St. Thomas.
“We’re very concerned for his well being,” said Scott Hancock, Kyle’s father. “We just want to know if he’s alive.”
On Wednesday, St. Thomas police officers were joined by volunteers from London Search and Rescue as they searched fields and areas in a radius of more than one concession.
“Our resources only allow us to search a certain amount of area especially with the time and the daylight hours that we have,” explained Samantha Wakefield, corporate communications coordinator with the St. Thomas Police Service (STPS).
She added, “We are back out searching areas in that vicinity that we weren’t able to continue our search in the last time. Having London Search and Rescue assist us today will allow us to fully search those additional areas.”
