State Police conducting missing person search in Darien

A State Police helicopter is involved in a missing person search off Fargo Road, Darien.

The person was reported missing yesterday. For a time yesterday, the Darien Volunteer Fire Company was involved in the search. At this point, only the State Police are involved in the search. There are multiple patrols in the area and officers on foot involved in the search.

The only description provided is a male subject.

A neighboring resident reported a little while ago seeing person running in the woods, seemingly trying to evade officers.

It's possible there may be no more information forthcoming on this case.

UPDATE 12:19 p.m. (by Billie): All available manpower from Darien Fire Department is asked to assemble in its hall at 1 p.m. to search for the missing man. In addition, a crew from Alexander fire is asked to assemble at the Darien hall to aid in the search. Alexander will also bring its Gator. All are told to dress warmly, of course.

Chief Dale Breitwieser, right, briefing volunteers on the search.

Alexander firefighters in the department's Gator.

The chopper in the first picture looks like a toy because of the foreground blurring. The effect is that the power lines in the foreground appear to be the background. Thus the helicopter looks tiny.

that's interesting Howard, I think it's great that we get to come along for the ride as you hone your photography skills. Yet, another benefit of reading The Batavian.
