HYDEN, Ky. (AP) — Crews are searching for a Clay County man who took an ATV ride into the woods and has not returned.

Friends say 49-year-old Earl Smith never came back from a trail ride on Saturday and rescuers began searching for him that evening. He was last seen in the Redbird Wildlife Management area in Leslie County.

WYMT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/WhMJSB ) that volunteers searched until early morning Sunday and began looking again later that day.

Friends say Smith knows the trails in the area well and they fear that he got injured.

Officials plan to widen the search Monday.
