Opelousas Man Missing - KLFY News 10

Opelousas Man Missing


Three friends leave town for a weekend fishing trip but only two return, and the missing man's fishing companions claim they have no idea what happened to him.

Now, authorities are searching for the Opelousas man. The mans family is already fearing the worst.

Unfortunately, the family of Earl Bubba Kidder Jr say they don't think they'll ever see him alive again, but they're still holding out, praying for his safe return.

Bubba's sister says he was picked up by a friend for a weekend fishing trip in the Sherburne Wildlife Management Area. He called his mother on Sunday to let her know all was well, and nobody has heard from him since.

The car his friend picked him up in, was found burned in Sherburne by Wildlife and Fisheries agents. We're told detectives in Pointe Coupee spent the day questioning the two people who were fishing with kidder before he vanished.

Pointe Coupee, St Martin, and St Landry Detectives are all working on this case.
