Friends and neighbors gathered Saturday morning at King Mesa Meadows Park to search for missing Rio Ranchoan James Eric Buckner.

Buckner was a well-liked UPS driver making deliveries in the Northern Meadows subdivision, where his abandoned car was found, said neighborhood resident Joe Grimando, who attended the search gathering.
He estimated around 200 people attended, using off-road vehicles, drones and dogs to search for Buckner.
Amanda Kimbrel, John Pettit and Lupe Ibarra had organized the search.
