The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Unit announced this morning that they are scaling back efforts to locate a missing 79-year-old California man in the Coyote Canyon area northeast of Nixon, Nevada where the missing man’s car was found last weekend.   

An average of 40 to 45 personnel from Washoe County and a  number of other northern Nevada law enforcement agencies have been actively searching a 400-square mile area of remote and rugged terrain since Monday morning but have not yet been able to locate Warren Alford Hagyard of Pioneer, California.

At this time, search supervisors have decided to “step back” from the active search in order to review strategies for continuing effort.  The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office and Amador County Office would like to express their appreciation to the following agencies for their assistance with the search to date:

Pyramid Lake Tribal Police, Pyramid Lake Search and Rescue, Humboldt County Search and Rescue, Douglas County Search and Rescue, Churchill County Search and Rescue (including fixed wing flight support), Pershing County Search and Rescue, Lyon County Search and Rescue, Carson City Search and Rescue, and the Carson City Sheriff's Mounted Posse Unit.
