In the fourth day of searching Tuesday, there was still no sign of a Fleming County teen who went hunting over the weekend and hasn't been seen since.
Crews continued to search for 15-year-old Ricky Hamilton off of Route 156 south of Flemingsburg. Volunteers from seven different counties are participating in the search, riding ATVs, climbing ravines, cutting their way through brush.
"I've done all this for you. If you're out there, let us know something," said Andrew Justice, a friend of Hamilton's.
Justice believes Hamilton is still out there somewhere in the hills. But like a lot of Hamilton's family members and classmates, he's growing weary. No one has found any evidence of what happened to the high school sophomore.
Search crews called it a night Monday when the sun set, and then picked up the search Tuesday morning. A bloodhound was also brought in to help with the search.
Hamilton's dad, who was the last to see his son while the two were hunting Saturday, says there's no way Ricky ran away, that he has to be nearby.
State police and sheriff's deputies are also involved in the investigation.
