HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -  Search party combed the fields and woods looking for Bo Hale, who's been missing a month.

Friday night his family is asking for volunteers and information, instead of gifts and well wishes, this Christmas.

Christmas Eve is a holiday marked by traditions. For Bo Hale's family, Christmas Eve was the chance to get away to the woods.

Bo's wife Cindy Hale says, "My husband and son and his father all used to go huntin' on Christmas Eve."

But this Christmas Eve, it's Cindy who's hunting, for any sign or clue that could lead her to find her missing husband.

Bo Hale was last seen November 29th as he left to run errands and do light home repairs for a woman on continental drive. His truck was found a few days later near the woman's house.

Friday morning a small search party fanned out with 4x4's and ATV's. They also searched on foot covering new ground across the highway from where Bo Hale's truck was found. They came up empty-handed. Cindy thinks someone knows enough to help them narrow the search.

Cindy says, "I'm just needing help with somebody just giving us a tip. We're searching huge areas.

Information and also volunteers. Two things Cindy says are necessary to bring Bo home.

Cindy says, "Even if somebody can come for three hours or one and a half hours or one hour. Sometimes I just need a ride or someone to pick up a four wheeler for me at the end of the day.You don't necessarily have to be out walkin' the fields with us. But there's other things I need help with."

To take part in the next search or to find out when organized search parties are launching from Jesse Stuart Elementary call 270-543-7522.
