Search for missing man continues in Schuylkill County

TAMAQUA, Pa. - Authorities in Schuylkill County are continuing their search for a 29-year-old man who went missing earlier in the week under bizarre circumstances.

Crews were seen scouring mountainous terrain on Saturday in the area of Route 209 and Valley Road in Tamaqua.

Authorities have been trying to locate Jesse Farber since Tuesday.

He was last seen on his way to his grandmother's house on Valley Road in Tamaqua.

Police say Farber's last phone call was to his girlfriend, when he told her he was in a tree because he saw some coyotes and his phone battery was dying.

Northeast Search and Rescue Chief Bruce Barton says dogs and ATVs were used in the search on Saturday.

Anyone with information is urged to call Tamaqua police.
