Authorities continue to search for an elderly man who went missing while hunting at a park in southern New Jersey last week.

State police say it appears that 74-year-old Barnett Zeldin of Mays Landing was hunting by himself at the Warren Grove Recreation Area, a 617-acre parcel of undeveloped wilderness in Burlington and Ocean counties.

Zeldin was reported missing Friday, and authorities believe he was in the Burlington County side of the park when he disappeared. But an exhaustive search of the area over the weekend produced few clues.

Zeldin is described as a white male, 5'7," approximately 140-160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact New Jersey State Police at (609) 296-3132.
