    WV - Earnest Edward Francis, 32, New Martinsville, 4 May 2011

    Earnest Francis Missing since 5/4/2011

    Earnest's Facebook Page

    His mother is using every local internet resource that I can find to get the word out about him being missing. She just posted the details of the car and what the police found on his facebook page.

    This is a local missing person for me.

    Can we discuss what the mother is posting on his facebook page about what was inside the car that was found? I can't get a handle on what can be posted and what can't and I dont' want to mess up. I will add more news coverage in a minute.

    Mother says the items found in the car were hidden under the seat. I do that when I'm going somewhere and don't want to carry the stuff. Hide it under the seat and just take my car keys with me.

    Still reading the facebook page. His mother states that the dogs hit on his scent in the cemetary beside long john silvers and again behind tractor supply. That means he probably walked from where the car was found, east, cut through the cemetary, across the road and around back behind the tractor supply. there is a lot of stores in that area.

    They found his car at Hydro, picked up his scent at the cemetary beside long john silvers and again behind tractor supply. I think they should search the woods behind tractor supply. It looks very rugged back there. Google maps has the tractor supply at the wrong location. It's the big building in the center of the plaza north of where long john silvers is. I'm trying to google map this but I can't get it to work on my computer.

    If he was walking the whole way, wouldn't the dogs pick up his scent in more than just those two places?

    Is it customary in a missing persons case to return items found back to the family before the missing person is found?

    Byers said there is no reason at present to suspect foul play. "All we want to do is make sure he is OK," said Byers, who noted that motorized and foot searches have been conducted by NMPD, New Martinsville Volunteer Fire Department and Tyler County Search and Rescue.

    Did anyone see the picture of Earnest with his 4 little children on Easter morning? Heartbreaking. It's on his facebook page. I will be putting out more posters this morning.

    The family is concerned that LE isn't doing enough, but I don't see what else they can do at this point. There are no leads as to where he could be.

    Crews Searching For Missing Father Of 4

    Francis, of Sistersville, is 5' 10" tall and 190 pounds. He has blue eyes with sandy red hair.

    After a ground search turned up nothing, rescue teams headed for the Ohio River and boats from Wheeling and McMechen each took out a K9 unit in hopes of finding some trace of Francis.

    Police said they have no indication that Francis is in the river, but they aren't sure what happened to him so they said they want to comb the area and rule it out.

    What struck me was that not only was his wallet and cell phone in the car, but also his house keys and his belt.

    Belt? Why would his belt be off?
    Did he make it to work that day?
    It doesn't sound like it.

    Anyone done a map of that area yet? I am not that good with maps.

    Is the Hydro Park area a place that swimming would be unusual or would it be permitted?

    It worries me that a belt, phone, keys and wallet stuffed under a seat sound a lot like someone who was going for a swim and didn't want those items to get wet.

    I know the dogs followed a trail--but what if he had walked up toward food (?) and then back along the same way and then into the water?

    I don't know what the weather was or if there is even real water access there, but I just can't shake the idea that those are exactly the items (especially if a leather belt) I would take off if going in the water in clothing--for whatever reason.
