Technology important in Neenah man search

With weather playing a major factor, the Door County Sheriff’s Department is relying on technology to help make headway on its search for a missing Neenah man. It was before Valentine’s Day when 57-year old Eric Richter went missing at Cave Point County Park while photographing the location. The Sheriff’s Department has relied on the United States Coast Guard, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and even the Dane County Medical Examiner’s cadaver dog to aid in its search. With deep snow and slippery conditions making the area difficult to navigate, Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says they were able to recently expand its search area thanks in part to an underwater robot and an air drone.

McCarty hopes better weather conditions over the next month can help make their search efforts more effective.
