PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) - A search effort is underway on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation after three men went missing Saturday.

Oglala Sioux Tribe President John Yellow Bird Steele has declared a state of emergency following the disappearances of 24-year-old Juan Allen Lamont, 21-year-old Tevin Tyon and 23-year-old Tyrell Tre Wilson.

The tribe’s legislative liaison, Donna Salomon, says the Pine Ridge men were last seen at 2 p.m. Saturday in a silver 2006 Buick Lacrosse with license plate F2893.

Salomon says search groups have been canvassing the reservation since Monday. She says they have looked for the men throughout the communities of Pine Ridge and Oglala and are now expanding the search toward the eastern part of the reservation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oglala Sioux Tribal Police Department at 605-867-5141.
