A search team gathered in Cleveland County Wednesday morning in hopes of finding a missing man.
According to investigators, Jeremy Reagan’s wife last saw him on August 9 at their home in Forrest Park.
Reagan’s pickup truck was at the Lexington Wildlife Preserve in Cleveland County, where searches were combing the area.
According to Jeremy’s wife, Heather, her husband visited the reservation.
“He’s been out there many, many times, sometimes every weekend, looking out for the upcoming deer season and if he might get a hog or a coyote,” said his wife Heather Reagan.
Heather said Jeremy, 40, spent days enjoying what nature offered. But she says when he didn’t come back, she filed a missing person’s report.
“It’s very unlike him to disappear without a trace and not contact his family in any way,” Reagan said.
Private investigator Jathan Hunt was contacted by the family.
“Families are devastated, this is something new for them, they are missing a loved one,” said Jathan Hunt, private investigator.
Since Jeremy’s disappearance, Hunt said teams of law enforcement, K-9, volunteer searchers and family members have gathered.
Most recently, Wednesday morning, in rough terrain. When her husband, a survivor, was injured, Heather said she believed he could hold out.
“I think with the bare minimum of what he had around him, he could survive for a while,” Reagan said.
Pigeon hunting season starts on Thursday. Signs with Jeremy’s pictures now line the reserve.
“It’s really important for every hunter to know that a person is missing,” Hunt said.
Jeremy was last seen in a yellow shirt which he was last photographed in.
According to Jeremy’s wife, the incredible husband and father are urgently needed at home.
“We just need to know he’s okay, if he needs time we just need to know he’s okay,” Heather Reagan said.
More searches are in progress and the family is asking for more volunteers.
