The family of an Oxford man who went missing over the weekend is still looking, while previous search attempts by the local authorities have so far turned up empty-handed.

Homer Myers, 75, was last seen in his Twin Gates residence off County Road 401 around 11 p.m. on Saturday. On Monday, the Oxford Police Department asked for the public’s assistance in helping locate Myers.

“We don’t know where he could have went,” said Allison Myers, Homer Myers’ daughter. “We were without a vehicle, so we don’t know how he could have left. The only friends he had were his coworkers, and between contact with his coworkers and ourselves, we just don’t know.”

Myers works at the Water Valley Poultry plant, according to his daughter. He also has no known medical conditions.

On Tuesday, the Oxford Fire Department conducted a 500-yard grid search, but were unable to find Myers or any clues as to what may have happened to him. Another search has not been conducted, and Myers’ daughter said she was not given a reason as to why.

If anyone has any information to whereabouts of Myers or has seen him, contact OPD at 662-232-2400 or Allison Myers at 662-607-9105.
