(Neb)-Volunteers Resume Search For Wyo Man Last Seen In Gering In July

By: John Axtell Posted at: 11/04/2019 11:43 PM
SCOTTSBLUFF - More than two dozen volunteers turned out yesterday morning in Scottsbluff to resume the search for a Wyoming man originally from the Edgemont area who's been missing since leaving his in-laws' home in Gering nearly 4 months ago.

      No one has heard from or seen 25-year old Chance Englebert of Moorcroft since July 6 when surveillance video showed him walking northbound in Gering around 8:00 pm - about half an hour after he left the home following an argument.

       Repeated searches followed along with repeated calls for leads from the public. Gering Police Captain Jason Rodgers says a number of tips did come in, but all proved to be dead ends.

      Yesterday's search was organized by Matt Miller, a close friend of Englebert who told KNEB News he felt he needed to take matters into his own hands. Miller created the Facebook group "Let's start with Chance" and set up the search because he didn't think anyone else could do it like he could.

      He plans to keep using the Facebook group to set up new searches, admitting that he's "kind of shooting from the hip right now" in choosing where to look. Yesterday's search focused on the North Platte River bottom, with a drone helping with the effort.

     Miller describes the disappearance as 'quite odd,' and plans to continue searching until he has answers - taking advantage of a 7-days on, 7-days off job. He also invites anyone who'd like to take part in the search efforts to join the Facebook group for further updates.
