Search For 3 Missing Pine Ridge Men Enters Second Week
Authorities and volunteers are beginning their second week of searching for three missing men on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Twenty-four-year-old Juan Lamont, 21-year-old Tevin Tyon and 23-year-old Tyrell Wilson were last seen in Pine Ridge on May 7. The Oglala Sioux Tribe declared a state of emergency.
Lamont’s mother has said the men told a friend they were going for a ride in the country. The tribe’s emergency manager says information from credit card usage and cellphone pings indicates they might have been heading to a reservation casino.
More than 200 volunteers spent Sunday searching for the men, using sport utility vehicles, horses and all-terrain vehicles. The search was to continue Monday.
The men were traveling in a silver 2006 Buick Lacrosse with license plate F2893.
