ANCHORAGE -

An organized search of the Willow Creek area involving Alaska State Troopers and numerous rescue agencies for a missing man from Missouri was suspended over the weekend, nearly seven days to the point when he was last seen.

In a Monday AST dispatch, troopers say an interagency management team incorporating troopers, the Alaska Mountain Rescue Group and Mat-Su search-and-rescue group MATSAR suspended all search operations for 71-year-old Jerry Warner as of 5 p.m. Saturday.

“No clues have been found inside or outside the search area during the duration of the search,” troopers wrote. “Based on the lack of clues in this case, no further organized search is currently planned.  If any clues arise in the future, they will be analyzed and appropriate resources will be deployed.”

Warner, a resident of Richland, Mo., was last seen leaving a recreational vehicle at the Willow Creek Resort Aug. 3. He was carrying a fishing pole but little or no food, and neither a cellphone nor a weapon.

AST spokesperson Beth Ipsen says the search was called off for lack of evidence, after efforts last week ranging from aerial overflights to underwater cameras to searchers on horseback.

“We’ve been out there beating the bushes,” Ipsen said. “Nothing, not a clue was turned up.”

Ipsen says family members are still conducting a smaller, unofficial search for Warner.
