Search continues for missing Greenville man


GREENVILLE Co., S.C. (WSPA) — The search continues for Dale Hunter.

On Sunday, investigators used helicopters, dogs and drones to find the 76-year-old who suffers from dementia.

The Greenville man disappeared Thursday after leaving his home on Altamont Road for a walk. 

Searchers have combed the area near Paris Mountain.

Sergeant Jimmy Bolt with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said the search ended around 7:30 p.m. Sunday and said teams will regroup Monday. 

Jackie Kemble has lived beside Hunter’s family for years and is shocked he hasn’t been found.

She doesn’t know how he could have gotten that far or what happened. 

Kemble is saddened with each passing day that he remains missing. 

The Hunter family has found support from their community.

They say their neighbors have gone above and beyond to show they care. 

His daughter, Susan Hunter, says it’s been nice to reminisce while keeping hope alive.

As the search for Hunter continues and the days grow longer his family says they stay focused on finding him.

“When we’ve allowed the negative and the discouragement we remind each other today’s a great day for him to be found,” Hunter said. 

Deputies are asking anyone in the Paris Mountain area with home security cameras to check them starting around 10 a.m. Thursday morning for any footage of Dale Hunter.

If any footage is found contact the Sheriff’s Office at 864-271-5210.
