After more than two days with no sign of him, the sheriff's office has expanded the search to include all areas located within a 15 mile radius of Beaver City.

They are asking that all property owners and tenants will search all area, including those that have been previously searched. Adding that it possible that Hardenbrook, due to his mental condition and medical status, may be actively avoiding contact.

The sheriff's office said people from all Furnas County have been joining the effort to find the missing man.

It is a very rural area so there are a lot of places to be searched, including abandoned buildings, overgrown shrubbery. And for people who live in town, be sure to check your garages, cars or any outside buildings.

They said they've had people out on horseback, ATVs and troopers with Nebraska State Patrol. They brought out K9s and their helicopter and still nothing.
