Today we conducted our most extensive and exhaustive search so far for Mr. Frank Stevenson. Beginning at day-break this morning, 80 searchers methodically covered an expanded search area, again, without success. The terrain and conditions continue to be a major challenge. Several hundred acres have now been covered with no signs of Mr. Stevenson. Our efforts were led again by game wardens with the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division. Also assisting today were agents with the State Bureau of Investigation, Alabama Forestry Commission, Alabama Department of Corrections officers, Perry County Sheriff's Department, Hoover Fire Department and Hoover Public Works Department.

We can't thank our Alabama Game Warden's enough for their guidance and leadership during our search efforts. They are serving as team leaders and are truly the subject matter experts when it involves an operation such as this. They too, are committed to finding Mr. Stevenson.

For the past two days, Officers from our District 3 have joined in the search in Perry County for a missing person from Hoover. Involved in the search were personnel from the Attorney General’s office, Hoover PD, Hoover Public Works, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and State Bureau of Investigation, the State Fire Marshall’s Office, and Perry County Sheriff’s Office.

Game Wardens are trained in Rural Operations, which focuses on situations such as this while cooperating with partner agencies for the benefit of the citizens of Alabama. We hope and pray for a positive outcome in Perry County.

UPDATE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22nd 8:00 PM

The ongoing search search for Mr. Stevenson has concluded for the day, without success. 45 searchers from multiple departments participated today, along with employees from City of Hoover Public Works and Park and Recreation Departments. These men and women are giving their best effort in very unfavorable conditions. Searchers are having to deal with standing water, mud, briars, underbrush, snakes, insects and uneven terrain. Anticipated severe weather and more rain will likely hamper our efforts tomorrow. The search will resume as soon as conditions allow. We remain committed to finding Mr. Stevenson.

UPDATE: TUESDAY, APRIL 21st 4:15 P.M.

Late yesterday afternoon Mr. Stevenson's car was located on a logging road in Perry County Alabama, near Marion. An individual riding a 4-wheeler on hunting land saw the vehicle and notified authorities. Numerous officers with the Hoover Police Department began searching the area for Mr. Stevenson yesterday, and they have continued that search today. Several agencies are assisting, including the Perry County Sheriff's Office, ALEA, Bibb County prison officers and others. The ALEA air unit has assisted, along with drone operators from HPD. Tracking dogs from Bibb prison and other agencies have also assisted. So far there have been no signs of Mr. Stevenson, but the search will continue. Although it cannot be ruled out, there are no obvious signs of foul play thus far. The search area terrain is difficult, wet, and encompasses thousands of acres. We ask everyone to please keep the searchers and especially Mr. Stevenson's family and friends in their thoughts and prayers.

MISSING PERSON / ENDANGERED

The Hoover Police Department continues to ask for the public’s assistance in locating Mr. Frank Morgan Stevenson. He was last seen on Tuesday, April 14th when he left his residence on Golf Drive in Bluff Park to drive to a credit union in Riverchase. He did not make it to his destination and has not been seen since. He was driving a gold, 2008 Toyota Camry, Alabama tag number 6211AW9.
Mr. Stevenson suffers from dementia and other health problems and may have become disoriented. He did not have his cell phone in his possession and only had a small amount of cash. We believe he was carrying a wallet with identification, but had no credit cards. His daily medications were also left at his residence.
Due to the length of time since his disappearance, we have grave concerns about his health and well-being. We are asking for assistance from citizens and neighboring law enforcement agencies in locating Mr. Stevenson or his vehicle. If located, please call 911 or the Hoover Police Department at 205-822-5300.

Always good to stay informed on scams that might be in our area!

Here's one being reported by Shelby County Sheriff's Office

Like we've said before...Be a #HangUpHero!!

#hooverpd

PLEASE DON’T FALL VICTIM TO THIS!

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has been notified that scam phone calls are currently going on. The person claims to work for the Sheriff’s Office and may allege that you have warrants, unpaid tickets, or outstanding fees. They will then ask for some sort of payment over the phone. These scammers can be very aggressive and convincing. They can easily “spoof” their phone number to appear to be calling from a real government agency.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will never contact you to collect payment or threaten you with legal action. Hang up on these scammers and never send any sort of payment. If you are ever unsure if the caller works for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, you can always hang up and call us back at (205) 669-4181.

SRO uses social media to paint, and connect

Time at home. Time away from your students and the school staff that you love. Painting. Personal therapy. Staying connected. Social media.

It has all the ingredients of Hoover Police Officer and School Resource Officer Jennifer Harrelson’s “new normal”. She has a page called Crafting Therapy Gifts, dedicated to helping others create works of art. She is able to connect with not only some of her students in a unique way, but also with people from around the world.

She is not a “professional painter”, a certified teacher or instructor, and she gives that disclaimer before each Facebook live session.

“I always give the disclaimer that I'm not a teacher or an artist but a person who likes to paint and want to share it with others. It is 100 percent free. I tell people they don't have to have fancy art supplies but basic paints and brushes. They can paint on wood or cardboard if they don't have canvas. I have been able to share my supplies with people who are local so there is no need for them to leave home. I have enjoyed it and the response has been wonderful.”

“I miss my RC3 (Riverchase Career Connection Center) terribly, so this is a way that we can all stay connected and get through this together."
