Methodist pastor still missing; church officials join search

HUNTINGDON, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities continue to search for a Methodist minister who has been missing since Friday.

Dyersburg's State Gazette is reporting that Mickey Carpenter's boat capsized in a Carroll County lake while he was fishing. His truck was found in a nearby parking lot.

Carpenter is the superintendent for the Paris district of the United Methodist Church and a former Dyersburg district superintendent.

The Newbern native has also been pastor at several churches in northwest Tennessee and western Kentucky.

The Carroll County sheriff's department says the search of the small, privately owned Bush Lake is ongoing. Several church officials are helping.
