Search continues for Enoch Dixon

By  | 

POTTSBORO, TX -- One week ago today an elderly Pottsboro man disappeared from his home without a trace.

Law enforcement has been searching ever since with no luck.

Volunteer search teams from the CUE center for Missing Persons and Texas Equusearch are set to arrive tonight to help look for 83-year-old Enoch Dixon...who goes by,"Dickey."

Friends say they'll do whatever it takes to bring him home safe.

Seven days after Enoch Dixon walked away from his home.

His bed hasn't been slept in, he hasn't been heard from and his family and friends are worried.

"Our main goal is to find him," family friend, Donnette Wilson, said. We want to keep his face out there and his name, and keep people searching. We need any clue at this point."

Wilson says the man they call Dickey went missing last Friday.

Wilson and hundreds of people, friends, family and just concerned community members have been searching for him every day since his disappearance.

Now two search and recovery organizations are joining those efforts.

"Texas Equusearch will be here today or tomorrow and CUE for the Missing Persons will be here," Wilson said. We've talked to Congressman Ralph Hall and he is sending a team down here."

Dixon's family says he suffers from Dementia, and had recently talked about going back to his hometown of McKinney.

Wilson says they hope the increased search efforts will bring him home.

"From my understanding they'll have horses and sonar boats and drones, and be able to do a lot wider search than we've been able to do on foot," Wilson said.

Judy Raymond says if anyone wants to help in the search, they are more than welcome to join.

"We need all the help we can get," Raymond said. "We need enough people to be three feet apart to walk through the woods and cover the area because Dementia patients can hide from us if we are trying to find them."

Raymond says they will be searching for a short time Friday and resume Saturday at 8:30 am.

She says if you want to help to wear bright clothing, good walking shoes, and you may want to bring a tool to dig through brush.
