Authorities search park for missing fisherman

November 29, 1997

A 31-year-old Cockeysville man who went fishing yesterday at Susquehanna State Park has vanished, prompting an extensive search yesterday of 1,100 acres of the park, police said.

Richard Frederick Carey went fishing about 6 a.m. and did not return, prompting his girlfriend to notify authorities. Harford County sheriff's deputies found his car at the park.

About 60 divers, firefighters and dogs combed the area, said John Surrick, spokesman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

"We have not been able to locate him," Surrick said. "There were no signs of foul play at the vehicle."
