Missing Russellville Man's Family Speaks

Relatives ask for the public's help in a search for a man missing since January 11th, 2014.
RUSSELLVILLE,AR--Search crews continue combing the Arkansas River looking for a man who may have jumped in trying to evade police. Authorities say when police stopped Michael Shane Caldwell and two other men January 11th, they ran.

One reportedly stayed behind and the other two allegedly tried to swim across the Arkansas River. Only one emerged. Nine days later relatives fear the worst but continue to hope for the best.

Shane's stepmother Danna Caldwell says "It's an absolute nightmare, a parent's nightmare. Something you never want to have to go through."

Relatives discovered one of Caldwell's shoes and his sweatshirt Sunday. Caldwell is around 6 ft. 4 inches tall with blonde hair and blue eyes.

The family is asking that anyone who may have seen him after midnight January 11th call Russellville police.

Logan, Johnson, Pope and Yell counties and Arkansas State Police are among the agencies lending resources to the rescue effort.
