Authorities are looking for a Scioto County, Ohio, man who was last seen Sept. 29.
James Laack, 34, of Swauger Valley was last seen when he was spotted on surveillance video making a purchase from Walmart, Capt. David Hall from the Scioto Sheriff's Department said. Laack's car was found stuck in the mud in the Scherer's Hollow area. Hall said that it appeared someone slept in the back seat.
Family, friends and a dog search team have been combing the area for any signs of him. The search dog team tracked his scent in to a ravine Wednesday, and a helicopter will fly over the area Thursday.
Laack is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 140 pounds and has green eyes. Anyone with information is asked to call the Scioto Sheriff's Department at 740-355-8245.
