    TX - Wesley Hixson, 30, Flower Mound Park, 21 June 2014

    Wesley Hixson


    Search for missing cyclist at Flower Mound park

    The search continued Sunday for a Roanoke man who was reported missing along a Flower Mound bike trail. Flower Mound police Capt. Richard Brooks said his agency was alerted Saturday afternoon after 30-year-old Wesley Hixson vanished along the extensive network of bike trails at Murrell Park, on the north side of Grapevine Lake. Hixson had been riding with another person, had an accident, and then became separated. It is feared that he may have sufferd a head injury. Brooks said the missing man's cell phone was found in his parked car.

    Thank you for posting this search. I live above this lake in Flower Mound and we are praying for a good outcome.

    This is our local paper, but your links to tv news will probably be more up to date.

    It started raining here last night after midnight and only stopped around 1:30pm today.

    He may have a head injury. Had a crash shortly before he disappeared.

    It has been over 48 hrs since Wesley Hixson has been seen. Again, it rained hard this morning

    I don't know why but his FB page was just removed and his wife's page has been edited down to nothing. She has been sharing info, such as his bike was found on the fishing path, and this morning as she was on the way to the search. It may only be to maintain some level of privacy.

    Intermittent rain has worsened search conditions and left the trail dangerously muddy, Brooks said. Police announced this morning that they will no longer be accepting inexperienced volunteers, but law enforcement will continue their search.

    Bike patrol officers, K-9 units, and Texas game wardens have all responded and a search helicopter hovered over the park Saturday but was unable to see through the thick canopy above the 23-mile trail, authorities said.
