Draining of Lake Harrison Continues in Search for Missing Couple

by: Beth Finello, Ozarks First

Search crews are pumping water out of Lake Harrison in an effort to find a missing couple.

John and Amy Villines’ SUV was swept away by rising floodwaters during last weekend’s severe weather.

The couple owned a well-known lock and key shop in town.

Harrison Assistant Fire Chief Darrell Pace says the search will resume Thursday morning at 9 a.m.

The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office will also be using a helicopter to search above the lake.
