HARDY, AR - A state emergency officials says the search for a retired Trumann firefighter is to resume today.

Rescuers in Sharp County called off a second day of searching yesterday for Jackie Richardson who was swept away when the Spring River in Sharp County overflowed its banks near a private campground at Hardy.

Richardson went missing Saturday at the River Bend Park campgrounds where he spends his summers doing carpentry for people who own lots there.  The search was centered on an area south of Hardy along the Spring River.  Rescuers used search dogs and boats and also searched on foot.
