On Tuesday, Fort Sill requested county aid in searching for missing Staff SGT David Lee Hawkins. The soldier went missing on Monday at 4am when he tried to drive over Medicine Creek on a low water crossing. Although they found and recovered his vehicle, the soldier was still missing. While Fort Sill and Lawton Fire Department searched the portions of Medicine Creek and East Cache Creek that lay in Fort Sill property, Emergency Management organized the county’s efforts to search East Cache Creek after it leaves Fort Sill. Lawton Fire Department and the Comanche County VFD’s of Cache, Chattanooga, Cox's Store, Fletcher, Flowermound, Geronimo, Hulen and Valley View conducted search and rescue efforts from Roger’s Lane to New Hope Road. The Comanche County Sheriff’s Office assisted the rescue teams, and the Comanche Nation Police searched the areas in Tribal territory. The County started their search at 8am on Tuesday, and ended at 12:30 when weather raised safety concerns for the teams. Slippery banks and overgrown vegetation become hazardous for the volunteers; and the nagging of mosquitos and threat of snakes did not make their job easier.
Remember to support the Fletcher Volunteer Fire Department at their fundraiser on Saturday in Chickasha, 10-2pm.
