Search to continue Monday for missing Ft. Campbell soldier

LYON COUNTY, KY — The search will continue Monday for a Fort Campbell soldier who disappeared on Kentucky Lake last week.

Private First Class JuWan Richardson was tubing out on Kentucky Lake Friday when his tube popped. He was reportedly not wearing a life vest and disappeared while trying to swim to shore.

Search crews have been looking for JuWan ever since.

Lyon County Judge Executive Wade White says on Monday they will be focusing on three spots. They are hoping divers or better scanners will be able to get a closer look at those areas.

White says if JuWan’s body is not found during the day, they need the help of bow-fishermen who own boats that are equipped with lights.

Those with boats who want to help, must have their boat at Moss Creek in the Land Between the Lakes on the Kentucky Lake side by 8:00 p.m. on Monday. A briefing will be held at 8:00 p.m. Volunteers will be given an area map with instructions should they find JuWan.

All volunteers must attend the briefing. If you have any questions about volunteering, you can call Lyon County Judge Executive Wade White at 270-625-2744.
