A mounted police unit helped reinvigorate the search for a missing St. John's man Tuesday, although there is no sign of what has happened to Scott Kelly.

Scott Kelly, 39, was reported missing after he left his home in the west end of St. John's around 2:30 a.m. last Wednesday. It's not known where Kelly had headed.

On Tuesday, police expanded their search west of Bowring Park and into Mount Pearl.

"Once we're done with this area, we will be looking at other natural trail areas in the city as well, because that is what Scott Kelly enjoyed, the trails," Const. Suzanne FitzGerald said.

FitzGerald said none of the tips received by police has produced any results. Police have been scanning surveillance videos from area businesses to help find clues.

It's not known where Kelly had headed when he left his home, but family and friends said he liked hiking on nearby trails.

Police said Kelly is about five-foot-seven, weighs about 175 pounds and usually has his hair in a ponytail.

When he was last seen, Kelly was wearing blue jeans, a black T-shirt, a blue fleece and a blue salt-and-pepper hat.

Wait I am confused.  A funeral is planned but I am seeing anything that says he was found dead? Or did I miss that.  I see the report of a body found but police have not said it was Scott.  He is only missing a few months?  Any tell me what I missed here Please

Even though it was unconfirmed that the body found was Scott, it likely was if a funeral is planned. In the past I've noticed that not much information is forthcoming if someone has taken their own life. I am wondering if that is the case here.

debbiec, yes, this seems to the rule in the area of suicide.
The intense LE search for him seemed of great importance as opposed to your average persons.
My heart goes out to Scott's family.
