ROMAYOR, Texas — Search teams mounted on horseback are to join the search for a 31-year-old Southeast Texas man missing since early this month.

Jurisdictional issues have complicated the search for Westley Moore. The Courier ( of Conroe reports teams from Texas EquuSearch are to join the effort in northern Liberty County on Friday.

Moore's aunt, Ramona Barker, says her nephew was despondent over the crib death of his 3-month-old child three years ago and disappeared on the child's birthday.

Moore is described as a 5-foot-6, 230-pound white man with blue eyes, red hair, a bulldog tattoo on his abdomen and other tattoos on his left arm and inside right leg.
