Sheriff's Search: A four-wheeling adventure off C.R. 442 along the Trinity River this weekend turned into an overnight search for a missing Westlake area man. Liberty County Sheriff's Capt. Ken DeFoor said Carl Givens of south Liberty County and his friend, Matt McClanahan of Tennessee, got their four-wheel drive vehicle stuck in the mud late Saturday. Mr. Givens went walking for help while Mr. McClanahan stayed with the Jeep, working to get it unstuck. Eventually, McClanahan freed the vehicle and drove out of the woods. Capt. DeFoor said Givens got turned around in the woods while walking and called 911. The sheriff's department enlisted the help of a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, the sheriff's department's mounted posse and Texas Equusearch. However, around daybreak Sunday, Carl Givens safely walked out of the woods on his own and onto C.R. 442 where he was picked up by law enforcement.
