Search under way for missing Petite Riviere man

by Lisa Brown

 PETITE RIVIERE - Searchers were still on the ground Monday morning looking for a Petite Riviere man last seen Saturday night.

 Sixty-one-year-old Edwin Sperry was reported missing to the RCMP early Sunday.

 Cpl. Derek Smith, incident commander at the search scene, said Mr. Sperry drove a family member to work in the Bridgewater area Saturday evening. He has not been seen since, but his vehicle is parked at his home, leading police to believe he returned there.

 There was no one at home at the time. Mr. Sperry lives with his wife and son.

 RCMP and volunteers from Lunenburg and Queens ground search and rescue teams combed the area Sunday, along with dog teams from the RCMP and ground search and rescue.

 On Monday morning, firefighters from several departments were called in to assist. Searchers were scouring roads and wooded areas for several kilometres surrounding Mr. Sperry's home on foot and using ATVs. They're encountering everything from "thickets of raspberry bushes … to very thick woods," the corporal said.

 A Natural Resources helicopter was also in the air on Sunday and Monday.

 "I would say at this point in time nothing's been found that's of interest to us," Cpl. Smith said around 11 a.m. Monday.

 Mr. Sperry is well-known in the area and runs his own electrical business. He was last seen wearing a navy jacket, jeans and sneakers. Sgt. Smith said police know Mr. Sperry has some medical issues and takes medication, although he could not say how critical that medication is to his health.
