A third search of the area where a Perdido man was last seen turned up no new leads to his current location.
Escambia County deputy sherrifs rode horseback through a wooded area near Nokomis where Woodrow Judge "Token" Allen, a 25-year-old white male, was last seen.
He was walking through the woods from a friend's house to his own home n a walk he made regularly.
Lieutenant Mike Lambert led a search party through the wooded area on Wednesday.
Sheriff Tim Hawsey said with each search the deputies are expanding the perimeter.
Hawsey said investigators have questioned 18 people regarding Allen's location.
One of those people told deputies he heard Allen had been killed and thrown into Dyas Lake in Baldwin County. A diving team searched the lake and found no sign of Allen.
Hawsey said the investigation will follow every lead that is presented, but that they can not base an investigation upon rumor and speculation.
