Everglades National Park (FL)
Search For Missing Man Terminated

The search for visitor Jacob Olivier has concluded with the park officially declaring him as missing and transferring the case to other law enforcement authorities. After a week of searching in the park and investigating clues from the search and those provided by the public, Olivier's whereabouts remains unknown. The search, which involved 45 staff from several agencies, three dog units and two helicopters, began on August 30th when rangers on routine patrol noticed that a vehicle that had been parked at the Pine Glades lake area for a number of days had not been moved. Rangers ran a vehicle check on the 1998 green Isuzu pickup, which had a Texas license tag, and contacted the vehicle owner of record, Tracy Olivier, who identified the current operator of the vehicle as his son, 23-year-old Jacob Olivier. Further investigation determined that Jacob Olivier had entered the park on August 24th. Anyone who may have seen Olivier while visiting the park or who might have other information as to his whereabouts is requested to contact park dispatch at 305-242-7740.
