Monday marks 31 days of searching for missing duck hunters

WARREN COUNTY, Miss – Local and state search crews have not given up hope in recovering two young hunters who went missing on December 3, 2020.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Sunday morning that he continues to pray that he and others searching the Mississippi River will find Gunner Palmer and Zeb Hughes, according to Vicksburg Daily News.

The duck hunters took their dog and got into a boat on Letourneau Landing and seemingly disappeared into thin air.

First responders, family, friends, and volunteers have been searching for the hunters tirelessly; including Christmas Day, about a week after the rescue turned into a recovery effort.

Weather conditions have hampered search efforts for several days, but Pace and Deputy Johnny Beauchamp returned to the river Sunday to search the waters from just north of the LeTourneau landing to the south end of Middle Ground Island, where Claiborne and Warren counties meet.

Agents from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks have been launching from Port Gibson and Natchez.
