For those of you who know Walter Ordway, the inventor of the trails, this story may wrench your heart. He is missing and they are still searching for his body in the pond near his house. I'll post more when I know anything. I am in constant contact with his family and neighbors. Hopefully he turns up somewhere alive. It is suspected that he ran into the pond to save his best friend Louis, his Old Englosh Sheep dog from drowning and neither of them made it out. They found the body of Louis in the pond earlier yesterday. Divers are going into the pond tomorrow morning so we will know more then.
A 66-year-old Soldier, Iowa man is missing Tuesday night with Monona County officials now confirming the disappearance. Hunters found Walter Ordway's pickup truck at a recreation area near Onawa, along with several other personal items.
