STE. GENEVIEVE COUNTY, MO (KPLR) - A Missouri lobbyist is making a plea to deer hunters to help find his missing wife.  She disappeared from their home more than a year ago.

This weekend marks the beginning of deer hunting season with firearms, and that's when the largest group of hunters will head out into the woods.

Kerry Messer is hoping they will not only look for deer, but evidence that could lead to his wife.

52-year-old Lynn Messer disappeared from their farm-house in St. Genevieve County in July of 2014.  Police and volunteers have searched unsuccessfully for Messer's childhood sweetheart.

Now he's hoping deer hunters will have better luck.

Messer wants hunters to look for suspicious items that don't belong in the woods.
