Searchers are looking for a missing Panama City man in the woods of the Pine Log State Forest off of State Road 79 just southeast of Ebro.

52 year old Dennis Massey was last seen about 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon while hunting with his brothers. When he failed to meet at a designated spot at 6:15 pm a search was begun.

Bay and Washington County sheriff's deputies and search and rescue personnel from both counties and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officers are taking part.

Bay County sheriff's helicopter is also flying in an attempt to spot Massey from the air

Searchers tell NewsChannel seven Massey was bow hunting with his brothers at the time he went missing.

There is some concern about hypothermia since temperatures overnight were in the mid to upper 40's in the search area and they don't believe Massey was dressed warmly.
