DOVER, Del. - The Dover Police Department has joined the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) in the search for a missing airman.

According to a press release issued by the United States Air Force, 21-year-old Senior Airman Keifer Huhman, of the 436th Communications Squadron, did not report to duty on Monday, February 8th to the Dover Air Force Base.  At that time, DAFB authorities initiated a missing person investigation.

Dover Police say it was learned that Huhman was last seen on February 7th, at approximately 6-6:30PM as he was leaving his home in Blue Hen Apartments, in Dover.  Huhman was operating a blue 1997 Ford Ranger with Florida tags.

On February 10th, the family of Keifer Huhman filed a missing person’s report with the Dover Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit, police say.  Detectives from the Dover Police Department have since worked closely with DAFB authorities on this case.

The Dover Police Department, assisted by the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit, conducted an extensive aerial search throughout Kent County for the truck that Huhman was last seen in.  During the aerial search, police say detectives learned that the truck was towed by the Delaware State Police from the shoulder of the William V. Roth, Jr. Bridge which spans the C&D Canal, on Sunday night at approximately 10:00PM.

With this information, police say the Dover Police Department, with the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit, conducted an aerial search of the canal and surrounding areas.  The Delaware State Police and Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) have deployed their maritime units to search the area.  The Dover Police Department is also processing the truck for evidence.

Despite the discovery of the truck and its location, the Dover Police Department and DAFB Office of Special Investigations are continuing the investigation as a missing person’s case with assistance from the Delaware State Police and DNREC Police.

If you have any information on this case, we ask that you call the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7130 or your local law enforcement agency.

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
