Volunteers on Wednesday canvassed the Green Mountain area and handed out fliers with Pracht's picture and posted others on light poles and mailboxes.

Much of Wednesday's search was focused in thick brush and steep canyons in the area, but there was still no sign of the missing paramedic.

K9s and cadaver dogs were being used in the widespread search with zero clues to Pracht's whereabouts. Search crews aren't leaving any stone unturned and his family believes he can't be too far away.

"I believe he's somewhere local, I believe he's somewhere around here," Pracht's cousin Andrew Fitch said. "We're just asking for the community's help as well … every little thing helps."

Flight for Fife also helped in Wednesday's search efforts flying above Green Mountain. Drones were also used.
