PALMYRA, Pa. (WHTM) -

State police in Lebanon County are searching by air and water for a missing 21-year-old man.

Maxwell Duesterhoeft was last seen early Saturday during a party at a picnic area in the 600 block of Pine Road in East Hanover Township, state police in Jonestown said.

The party began Friday evening and sometime between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., Duesterhoeft removed his shoes and walked away from the party toward the edge of the Swatara Creek, police said.

When he did not return, others attending the party looked for him throughout the morning and afternoon before contacting troopers at 7 p.m. Saturday, police said in a news release.

After a limited search Saturday evening, police on Sunday searched the banks of the creek for several miles, on foot and by helicopter, but the only sign of Duesterhoeft were footprints in the creek bed leading into the creek west of the party location, the release stated.

Ono Fire Company and Fort Indiantown Gap Fire Department searched the creek by boat.

Duesterhoeft's vehicle was still at the party location when troopers arrived on the scene, police said.

Duesterhoeft was last seen wearing a red sweatshirt and blue jeans. He is described as 5'11" tall, 160-170 lbs., with light brown hair and a brown beard.

Anyone with information or contact with Duesterhoeft should call state police in Jonestown at 717-865-2194.
