Missing Boater Search Continues On Christmas Day

Search and rescue personnel resumed their search for a missing boater Christmas morning. Officers from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks along with officers from the Reservoir Patrol initiated their search at daylight.

The missing boater has been identified as Larry Wayne Thomas, 64, of Jackson, Mississippi.

“We are again facing weather concerns and limitations today,” stated Perry Waggener, Chief of the Reservoir Patrol.  “We have used breaks in the precipitation to conduct quick operations.  Unfortunately, the forecast for Monday will also present weather challenges but we will remain on site until we bring Mr. Thomas home to his family.”

Prayers and blessings to his family. What an awful thing to go through at any time, but especially right at Christmas. God bless them and the searchers in their efforts.
