October 13, 2007--The family of a missing Des Moines man is taking the search for him into their own hands. Donald Beck has been missing for more than a week and today his family organized a search team to scour the banks of the Des Moines River.
The 52-year-old left home to go fishing in the Des Moines River October 4th and hasn't been seen since.
"He loved to fish," said his sister Ruth Ford. "And he wanted to get as much of it in as he could before winter."
Beck's family says he has a medical condition that makes it difficult for him to walk and he hasn't taken his medication for days.
The search group started at 8:00 on Saturday morning. Don's sister, Ruth Ford asked for volunteers to meet on Southeast 14th Street to help look for him. They also searched around Southeast Ninth, where his car was found last week.
So far they haven't found any articles of the missing man.
