Officials are looking for a man near Nolin Lake Marina. Sheriff’s Detective Jeff Kelsey said family members of a 65-year-old Haycraft man called after noticing him missing Tuesday morning. Kelsey said several items that Haycraft usually carried were at his home causing the family to worry. A bulletin was placed on his pickup which was discovered by Chief Deputy Tony Willen near a dock on Nolin Lake past the marina pavilion.
Grayson County Emergency Management Director Ernie Perkins called for a search party just before 9 a.m. Tuesday morning. Wax, Clarkson and Leitchfield fire departments responded. Clarkson Fire Chief Andy Cain was the first diver in the lake and more drivers were called to the scene. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officers brought out their boat to search the football-field-sized inlet with sonar.
Kelsey said Haycraft’s residence in Clarkson on Grayson Springs Road near the intersection of Grindstone Road was near the lake but family had told Kelsey that Haycraft neither swam or fished regularly.
Officials say the last point of contact Haycraft had was an evening visit with his wife at Spring View Health and Rehab in Leitchfield on Monday evening.
Perkins said there is no limit on the hours a search can take. Recently searches have been called for missing persons that result in the person being found within a few hours. At noon Tuesday, the search for Haycraft continued.
If anyone has seen Haycraft since Monday evening, they are asked to called Grayson County Sheriff’s Department at 259-3024 or Central Dispatch at 259-0303.
