RALLS COUNTY, Mo. — The Ralls County Sheriff’s Department says the man who was reported missing Tuesday afternoon is Terry Marshall, 60, of Hannibal.

Police said Marshall was mushroom hunting when he went missing. Marshall works at the Northeast Correctional Center in Bowling Green.

Sgt. Brent Bernhardt with the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the search for Marshall would continue. Searchers called off their search around 8 p.m. Wednesday and will resume the search Thursday morning.

“We have a helicopter up and are searching land and water,” Bernhardt said on Wednesday afternoon. “We are all hoping for a good result.”

A motorboat was found at Hunter Fisherman Access 70, Cincinnati Landing, off Cincinnati Road about five miles north of Center. Deputies also found a pickup truck at the nearby Salt River that they believed belongs to Marshall.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol was contacted at 2:50 p.m. Tuesday by the Ralls County Sheriff’s Department to assist in a missing-person search. The man’s family members were on site near the search scene Tuesday night and throughout the day Wednesday.
