BUTLER COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Edward Goodwin has been missing since June 2015.

His family has planned a search for him on Saturday, February 11 around 9 a.m.

The search will include about 35 people and 12-13 dogs.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Department said in a letter to Edward Goodwin's mother, Connie, that they believe he is probably dead.

The sheriff said their information is that Goodwin was probably led to a rural area, beaten and killed.

His body was never recovered.

A man was taken into custody in October 2015 by Shannon County deputies on charges stemming from Goodwin's disappearance. However, those charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence.
