NEWS RELEASE:

A Putnam County man has been reported as missing in the Page area of Fayette County. Sheriff Steve Kessler released the following information concerning the search for this missing man:

During the late afternoon hours of Tuesday, November 11, 2014, Officer D.W. Hylton of the West Virginia Natural Resources Police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the Page area of Fayette County, WV. Upon arrival at the scene near the Page Baptist Church Officer Hylton made contact with two individuals from Frazier's Bottom in Putnam County. These individuals stated that they were in this area with a friend when their friend suddenly got out of the vehicle, began acting in an irrational manner, and ran up the hill into the woods above the Page Baptist Church. Officer Hylton checked the area but was unable to immediately locate this individual.

During the early morning hours of Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Sergeant Dennis Feazell of the West Virginia Natural Resources Police and two bloodhound K-9 teams from the Fayette County Sheriff's Office returned to the area to continue this search. Both bloodhound teams determined that, while the missing individual had obviously been into the woods, at some point this individual had walked back out of the woods and made his way to the area of WV Route 61 in the Page area. They were unable to make contact with this individual. Officers from the West Virginia Natural Resources Police and the Fayette County Sheriff's Office are continuing to search the area in an effort to locate this missing individual.

Chance Thomas Plumley, age 24, of the Frazier's Bottom area of Putnam County is described as a white male, approximately 6-04 and weighing approximately 145 pounds. He has very short brown hair and hazel eyes and a large tattoo across his back. He was last seen wearing a flannel shirt, a black motorcycle jacket, jeans, and black tennis shoes with orange trim. Anyone who may have seen this individual in the Page area is urged to contact the Fayette County 911 Center at (304) 574-3590.

“This individual is not believed to pose any danger to others, but may apparently be suffering from some mental health issues,” said Sheriff Kessler. Given the expected onset of extremely cold weather in this area, we are hoping to locate this individual before he suffers from exposure to the elements.” This incident remains under investigation by the West Virginia Natural Resources Police and by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
