Lincoln County Search and Rescue is continuing their search for an overdue hunter in the Rose Lodge area east of Otis. Floyd Lucero was last reported to be hunting off of Holiday Lane in Rose Lodge, south of Highway 18. Lucero was last seen wearing camo gear and is an experienced hunter.
Search and Rescue, North Lincoln Fire Protection District and Forest Service personnel along with some local residents familiar with the area, launched a search but found no sign of Lucero. Due to heavy wind and rain the search was interrupted on Sunday due to hazardous conditions. The search was resumed this morning.
