Deputies are searching for a 53-year-old man who disappeared after a Monday argument with his daughter, the Garland County sheriff’s office has said.
Hershel Winningham, who was last seen walking on Arkansas 290 on Monday, is being sought because authorities are concerned for his well-being. About two weeks ago, Winningham suffered head injuries in a car accident that have left him with diminished capacities, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies were called Monday to an argument involving Winningham and his daughter in the 1700 block of Arkansas 290, deputies said. Winningham became angry, left the house and was last seen walking into a field heading north toward the Andrew Hulsey Fish Hatchery, at 350 Fish Hatchery Road in Hot Springs.
Deputies used their mounted patrol to search an about 3.5- to 4-square-mile wooded area in the direction he was last seen walking, but they didn’t find him.
Anyone with information about Winningham’s whereabouts is asked to call the Garland County sheriff’s office at (501) 622-3660.
