NILES, Ohio- The father of a missing Ellsworth Township man said that his son is in the care of Mahoning County Sheriff's deputies who are trying to figure out what happened while he was missing.

Jeff McCrory told 21 News that he did pick up his son Scott McCrory, who had been missing since Wednesday, at the Eastwood Mall Friday.

He said that the Niles Holiday Inn had a photocopy of Scott's ID because he had apparently stayed there a day or two.

Jeff said that he turned Scott over to deputies who have him at an undisclosed location while they talk to him about what happened while he was out of touch with family.

McCrory was the subject of a seven hour search in Ellsworth Township Friday by helicopters and forty members of the Mahoning County Sheriff's department and local fire departments.

NILES, Ohio- A missing Ellsworth Township man has been found but detectives are continuing to investigate.

A family member said Scott McCrory was found by his father in front of the Eastwood Mall shortly after 9 p.m. Friday.

McCrory's sister Heather Wymer, who the 24-year-old lived with, said that she is still worried about him and their father is not letting anyone see him.

She said that their father fled with him in a vehicle.

Mahoning County Sheriff's detectives are investigating the situation.

Earlier Friday, authorities were combing an area off Palmyra Road for McCrory.

McCrory has a mental disorder and his family said he was off his medication.

ELLSWORTH TWP., Ohio - A seven hour search on Friday turned up no sign of a 24-year-old man reported missing in a wooded area of Ellsworth Township.

Scott Bradley McCrory was last seen by his 9-year-old nephew wandering into the woods around 1:00 Wednesday afternoon.

Family members say he often left the house, which he shared with his sister, to clear his head.

McCrory suffers from a mental disorder, and his family says he was off of his medication.

Surrounding agencies were seen searching on foot, by four wheeler, and by helicopter.

"There's a lot of acreage out here, a lot of woods. Dense foliage makes it difficult. We're doing what's commonly known as a grid search," says Major Jeffery Allen of the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department.

Members of the Ellsworth Township Fire Department began searching a wooded area on Palmyra Road at 8 a.m. on Friday.

They were joined by members of the Mahoning County Sheriff's department, as well as firefighters from Berlin Center, Canfield, North Jackson and Deerfield.

Helicopters from Stat Medevac and the drug task force searched from overhead.

Ellsworth Fire Chief Robert Sternburg tells 21 news that 40 people took part in the search, which concluded around 3 p.m. Friday.

Chief Sternburg says it's up to the Sheriff to decide if the search will continue.

Local police agencies have broadcast an alert to be on the lookout  for McCrory.

"I just hope we find him safely," says McCrory's sister Heather Wymer. "Let me know he is found and safe. My whole family misses him at this very moment.

Authorities say, McCrory did not have a weapon or cell phone with him. If you have any information on his whereabouts, contact authorities.
