Approximately 20 people searched a secluded area off County Road 300 near Skyline Wednesday for James Elliot. This comes after someone discovered clothing which may have belonged to Elliot. Search dogs accompanied the party in the effort to locate the man.

Authorities located Eliot's SUV in a wooded area south of Scottsboro in 2016. They believe Eliot's vehicle wedged between two trees, which forced him to leave the scene on foot.
