A search of the area around William Kain County Park in Springfield Township on Monday failed to locate a Felton-area man who's been missing for nearly a week.

State police searched the area — which includes Lake Redman and Lake Williams — but found nothing to help them solve the disappearance of 56-year-old Scott A. Baker, according to Trooper Kelly Osborne, a state police spokesperson.

Assisting troopers in Monday's search were a state police cadaver K-9 as well as a K-9 search team from the York County Sheriff's Office, Osborne said.

Also assisting were state police water and aviation units and Summit Search and Rescue, she said. The latter is a nonprofit organization in the Lewisberry area that provides tracking bloodhounds for such searches.

The search had "negative results," she said.

Baker's blue Hyundai Accent with New York plates was found in the Hess Farm Road parking lot of Kain Park on Nov. 17, and Baker was last seen there at 9:38 p.m. that night, police have said.

The lot is near the Lake Redman boat launch, police said.

State police in York are searching for Scott A. Baker, who was last seen at 9:38 p.m. Nov. 17, 2020, at William Kain County Park. His car was found in a parking lot near the Lake Redman boat launch, police said.

Baker has been added to the FBI's National Crime Information Center computer database as a missing person, and the investigation into his disappearance remains ongoing, Osborne said.

Troopers are asking that anyone in the area on Nov. 17 who took photos or whose vehicles have dashboard cameras contact the York County state police barracks at 717-428-1011, or call Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 800-4PA-TIPS.

Also, anyone who was in the area between 3 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 is asked to call those numbers even if they didn't take photos — especially if they saw Baker, his car or anything suspicious, police said.

All callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward through Crime Stoppers, according to police.
