CARLYLE, Ill. (AP) — Authorities renewed their search for a 28-year-old southern Illinois father who’s been missing since July after some pieces of his personal property were found last week.

Jared Hanna of Jerseyville was last seen on July 3 walking along a Clinton County road.

Police believe his truck ran out of gas and that he was going for help. His truck was found, but Hanna vanished.

Clinton County Sheriff Mike Kreke says items belonging to Hanna were found last Sunday about a mile and a half from where his truck was found. He wouldn’t give any details about the items.

Authorities say about 50 people and several search dogs planned to search the area Saturday.

Family members say Hanna was a dedicated father to his two daughters and wouldn’t have left them.
