TX - Larry Baker, 55, Cleveland, 29 Jan 2010
By VANESA BRASHIER
Police are searching the woods near a Plum Grove man’s home on CR 325 off Plum Grove Road (FM 1010) in the hope of finding information that leads to his whereabouts.
The man, 55-year-old Larry Baker, was first reported missing Friday morning by his sister, who lives in a trailer on the same property as Baker.
Previously it was reported that the missing man was in his 80’s; however, that information proved to be incorrect.
According to Steve Green, spokesperson for the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, the man was last seen on Thursday night.
“This gentleman lives on the same property as his sister. Last night, they fed him and this morning when they went to check on him the doors on his house were wide open and he was gone,” said Green.
The search is being coordinated by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office. Firefighters from the Cleveland and Plum Grove area are assisting in the search.
Green said that dogs from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice were called out to assist in the search. Texas EquuSearch was also notified about the man’s disappearance.
When asked if volunteer were needed to help search for the man, Green said, “Once we get the dogs out from TDCJ (Texas Department of Criminal Justice), the dogs will probably find him faster than any other searcher.
Baker is described as 5’ 11”, 150 lbs. with brown hair and green eyes. He also has a moustache.
According to Baker’s brother-in-law, Kelly Nickerson, Baker has health problems that have the family concerned for his welfare.
“He’s had five strokes and can’t even walk to the mailbox and back without a problem,” said Nickerson.

Searchers find no trace of missing Cleveland man
It’s been five years since Larry Baker, 54, of Cleveland, walked out of his home on CR 325 and into oblivion. His disappearance on the cold, wet early morning of Jan. 29, 2010, remains a mystery, and investigators seem to be no closer to solving it.
[The search] has recently been revitalized, in part, due to Baker’s brother, Jerry Kinner, who insists that his brother came to harm and was murdered. Still there is no evidence trail for law enforcement to follow.
On March 16-18, searchers returned to Baker’s old property and renewed the search once again, but their efforts were fruitless with nothing found to advance the investigation.
