Press Release:

Sheriff J.E. "Chip" Harding and his son Brent searched the Rivanna River Tuesday by canoe.  They searched from just below the reservoir dam off Rt. 29 to the take out at Darden Towe Park.

The float took slightly more than 2 hrs and yielded negative results. The river and reservoir are still slightly above normal and dingy.

Wednesday will make it two weeks since Mr. Shifflett was last seen and his truck was found abandoned in the middle of the reservoir bridge just after 8pm.

Anyone with information concerning his disappearance please call CrimeStoppers at 434-977-4000 or the Albemarle County Police at 434-296-5806.
