Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department is asking for help from the general public in trying to locate 35-year-old Steven Ray Lawrence of Long Branch.

A family member contacted the Sheriff’s Department Monday morning, although the Coal Mountain, Brenton and Hanover fire departments had assisted in the search for Lawrence Saturday evening, according to Sheriff Randall Aliff.

Lawrence is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair. On his right hand, Law-rence has one finger that was partly cut off, then reattached.

He was last seen in the Long Branch/Simon area Saturday morning, Aliff said. He was wearing a blue jean jacket with jeans, and possibly brown work boots.

Anyone who has seen him or has any information is urged to contact the Wyo-ming County Sheriff’s Department at 304-732-8000.
