UTV taken from rescue squad

A John Deere Gator side-by-side owned by
Martin County REACT and Rescue Squad is missing.

INEZ, Ky. — An Eastern Kentucky emergency organization is asking for the public’s help in locating an all-terrain vehicle that has gone missing.

Martin County REACT and Rescue Squad’s John Deere Gator side-by-side is believed to have been taken from a location along Route 3, near the Martin and Johnson county line.

Officials say the vehicle is an important piece of equipment for use in emergencies. It was recently used to find a little boy who was several miles from home after getting lost in the hills.

The rescue squad asks anyone with information about the vehicle to contact law enforcement.
