Golden Alert issued for Clark man

UPDATE: According to Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue Jr., Ricky Calvert was found deceased in Bath County. No foul play is suspected. 

Authorities are searching for a Clark County man missing since Wednesday evening.

A Golden Alert was issued Friday for 66-year-old Ricky Calvert of 423 Paisley Court.

Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue Jr. said his office learned of the situation Wednesday night through a third party.

Perdue said Calvert’s cell phone is turned off, so deputies have not been able to locate his phone. The last ping, he said, was on a cell tower on North Main Street.

Perdue said he has been in contact with authorities in Morehead and Montgomery County to check places the family thought Calvert might go, he said. So far, Calvert remains missing.

Perdue said Calvert had made statements that he may want to harm himself as well.

Calvert is described as being six feet tall with blue eyes and shoulder-length gray hair, a gray beard and chipped teeth.

He was seen leaving his home Wednesday in a white 1996 Ford F-150 pickup truck with Kentucky license plate 414194.

Calvert regularly wears jeans and button-up shirts.

Anyone with information on Calvert’s whereabouts should call the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 744-4390.
