Boles then got the call a 30 square mile area and no- thing was found. Chief Paul R. McClellan stated, "If it was a hoax, the part was played real well. We just can't ignore a call for help like that." The search was also assist- ed by James York of the Flo- rata National Guard, and the helicopters came from the base at Ft. Rucker. Also various citizens assisted in the search. A late call to theFloralaPo- lice Department revealed that a small search was in progress around Sanford located between Andalusia and Opp. This search was being conducted by the Sheriff's department and Flo- rala had a car assisting. At presstime no definite word was brought to light onthe sub- ject, although a tape recording of the transmissions were be- ing studied at length. Hard work may be good for man but there are generous souls willing to give their share to someone else.
