LEFLORE COUNTY (KFSM) - Authorities continued to search for a missing Spiro man on Tuesday (May 12), officials say.

LeFlore County authorities are looking for a man who they say was reported missing around 10:30 a.m. on Monday (May 11) after flooding caused by extensive rain over the weekend.

Dennis Donaho, 60, went missing near Spiro and was using a tractor to check on his cattle, according to the LeFlore County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities found his tractor, but they haven't found the missing man yet, officials said.

Crews got a probable hit on the sonar nearly 30 feet away from his tractor, and it is possibly Donaho's body, according to the LeFlore County Sheriff's Office.

A dive and rescue team was brought in to help search for him, according to the sheriff's office.
