Police continue search for missing Tuscaloosa County invalid

TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — No one has seen Emmett Kyzer since June 27th, but his relatives are not giving up hope.

The family of the 82-year-old invalid is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and volunteers are involved in the search as well, using all-terrain vehicles, tracking dogs, a police helicopter and horses.

Investigators found his wheelchair outside his home on Keenes Mill Road when he was reported missing last Wednesday.

“Just like anybody you want to find your family member safe and sound,” said Nikki Sellers, his niece. “He has a lot of health problems and we are really worried about him health wise and we just want him home.

”Today we decided to expand our search a bit and bring out the mounted units on horseback and the ATV’s and expand out,” said Sgt. Miles of the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

The search for Kyzer will resume at 9 a.m. on Thursday, when police will begin using cadaver dogs to try to locate the missing man.
