Authorities resumed their search for a missing 22-year-old man about 8 a.m. Thursday in the woods off Pleasant Road near Primus Crossroads.
Lancaster County sheriff’s spokesman Doug Barfield said the search for Jerrell White had to be suspended late Thursday due to a combination of a severe, lightning-laced thunderstorm and nightfall.
“We’re back out here looking again,” Barfield said Thursday morning.
White’s last known addresses include 180 Ranson Road, 922 Sherwood Circle and 805 Hudson St.
White was last seen at a home in the 4000 block of Pleasant Road about 1 a.m. Wednesday, and it is believed he left there walking.
Deputies, EMS, Lancaster County Fire Rescue, volunteer firefighters and the county’s tactical team continue combing the woods and pastures between the closed bridge on Pleasant Road and Fork Hill Road. A helicopter and tracking dogs are also involved in the search.
Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said Wednesday afternoon that White’s cell phone had been found, but there have been no signs of him.
“To our knowledge, there are no special medical needs, emotional conditions or anything like that,” Barfield said. “There are no special facts at this time other than he is missing.”
White is 5-10 and weighs about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a yellow and green jersey-type shirt.
Anyone who sees White or has information about White’s whereabouts should call 911 or contact Jeff Jones of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 313-2134 or jjones@lacoso.net.
