ROANOKE, Va.UPDATE: March 6, 2021

The search for a missing Bedford County man continued along the Blue Ridge Parkway Saturday afternoon.

Brent Gibson was last seen Wednesday at the Roanoke River Overlook, where his car was also found that same day.

A group of 75 volunteers and park rangers searching in and around the overlook.

They didn’t find any clues, but Gibson’s loved ones say they won’t stop until they find him.

“A lot of people have lost faith in humanity, and this helps us to know that people are kind and people care,” said Carrie Slusser and Nicki Bowyer.

The volunteers will return to search on Sunday.
