Crews search river for missing Frankfort man

Crews continued to comb the Kentucky River on Wednesday for a Frankfort man who has been missing since the weekend.

Hanley Peavler, 62, spent Friday night in his pontoon docked on the Kentucky River near the Capitol Avenue bridge, said Tom Russell, deputy emergency management director for Frankfort and Franklin County. Peavler's family called police when they didn't hear from Peavler on Saturday.

Officials have done surface sweeps and used sonar. The investigation is considered a missing person search, but "nothing has led us away from the river," Russell said.
