UPDATE – Jay is know to walk to Luther on occasion. Several storms overnight made the search difficult. He may have hunkered down at that time but may now be walking and near a road. In the time he’s been missing he could have gotten a pretty far distance away from his home area near Britton and Peebly.Oklahoma County Sheriff’s OfficeWe have the mounted patrol, AirOne and many deputies and reserves currently searching near where he was last seen and expanding outwards. As the search gets wider and wider a call out may be needed. If anyone lives near that area we are asking to go ahead and search on or near your property.
