Authorities Continue Search for Missing Man
Several local law enforcement agencies formed a cooperative effort to search Lake Brownwood on Wednesday for a missing Aquilla man.
Richard Gary Parker, 76, drove away from his home on April 24th and his relatives have been looking for him ever since. Parker’s pickup truck was found parked and abandon at Lake Brownwood’s Mountain View Lodge. There was no sign of Parker with the truck, which had been parked at Mountain View at least since April 26.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is heading up the search with assistance from the Brownwood & Early Police Departments, Texas DPS, Game Warden, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Officers from Gatesville (with their K-9 unit & horses) and Lake Patrol officers. Sheriff Bobby Grubbs said that officers are using several means to search the rough terrain at the lake including a blood hound, horses, 4-wheelers, a helicopter, and boats to check the shorelines. Grubbs said that so far no signs of the man have been found.
