LONSDALE, AR – Crews spend their second full day searching the woods near Lonsdale in Garland County, looking for missing 25-year-old Roy Smith.

The Garland County Sheriff’s Department says Smith was last seen riding a 4-wheeler with his friends on July 27th. However, a missing persons report wasn’t filed until 9 days later, leaving search crews without any solid leads.

In addition to the late start, the sheriff’s department says conflicting reports from witnesses are not helping either.

Sheriff’s deputies say Smith’s mother filed the report when she learned her son was no longer with his girlfriend. It is not know why his girlfriend and the friends who when 4-wheeleing with Smith did not report anything.

The search will continue Wednesday. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Smith, please call the Garland County Sheriff's Office at 501-622-3660.
