PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– An official with Perry County Emergency Management says the recovery effort for a missing man will continue Friday morning.

Danny Napier has not been seen in over a month.

His belongings were found just feet from flood water on Highway 550 in Hazard last month.

The search had to be suspended for a week due to rising water levels of the Kentucky River.

The official says crews are bringing dogs to help in the search, which is expected to begin around 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.
