Search and rescue teams continue to scour land and water at Ohiopyle State Park for Jeremy Walker, 29, of Somerset, who was reported missing Wednesday.

Officials released Walker's name on Saturday as 69 searchers, including dog teams, water and swift-water rescue squads made their way around the 20,500-acre park in Fayette County, said Stacie Hall, assistant Ohiopyle park manager.

“Being a Saturday, we wanted to push hard today to eliminate a lot of the ground possibilities,” Hall said.

Walker's family reported him missing around 11 a.m. Wednesday after they discovered his car in a parking lot at the state park.

Hall has said search teams are investigating the man‘s travel plans and using his age, physical condition, and activity history to determine likely areas of the park where he might be found.

“He has been here before, so he has a vague familiarity with the area,” she said.
