The search for a missing 63-year-old Warren County man is now in its third day.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said dozens of personnel, including volunteers, and teams using drones, searched Saturday up until dark without any success of finding Harold Lindsey, who was last seen Thursday evening talking to his neighbor.

Lindsey is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 149 pounds. Pace said he is a diabetic and may or may not have had his medication. Family members said when he is not on his medication he becomes disoriented and confused.

Pace said deputies responding to a call Friday of an abandoned pickup truck on Ring Road about 10 a.m. Friday found Lindsey’s red Ford Ranger pickup apparently stalled out on Ring Road with its hood up.

While a deputy stayed with the truck, another deputy went to Lindsey’s home but he was not there. The deputy talked with neighbors and family members, but no one knew where he was.

The neighbors said he had not returned home and had not been seen since Thursday.

Pace said deputies searched a heavily wooded area adjacent to where the truck was found. Saturday, the search was joined by the Central Mississippi Overland Search and Rescue Team, a volunteer organization composed of sheriff’s deputies and volunteer firefighters from Central Mississippi who participate in search and rescue operations. The sheriff’s office, he said, is a member of the organization.

“We are searching a large area along Ring Road, but if anyone saw Mr. Lindsey Thursday they need to call 911 and ask to speak to a sheriff’s office investigator,” Pace said.
