IMPERIAL - After a week of searching investigators are closing in on the hunt to find Joe Daggett, a Fort Stockton man who went missing back in 1988.

This week, cadaver dogs pinpointed a small area on an abandoned ranch in the Imperial area.

On Thursday, the landowner gave the OK to begin digging and now they're just waiting on equipment to be delivered.

They'll focus on a five by five foot well that's filled with debris.

The investigator says he's not sure how deep they'll have to dig.

A team of six local volunteers will help investigators look for Daggett during the next few days.
