The Lake County Sheriff’s Office continues its search for a missing Ronan man who disappeared Saturday while picking berries with friends.

According to Lake County Sheriff Don Bell, Allen Ray was reported missing after separating from his friends while picking berries in the Schwartz Lake area of the Mission Mountains, south of Ronan.

No sign of him has been found. Initially there were reports of sightings of him after the initial report, but none of these have been substantiated after further investigation.
