Original story: A man who went missing during a bike ride on Labor Day is still missing.
Charles “Chuck” Stark, 51, left his house on Seventh Street in Wyoming that evening on his brand new rust colored 10-speed bike onto a trail a couple blocks from his home and never returned.
Charles’ wife, Michelle said that Charles will have a seizure if he gets dehydrated.

“My husband Chuck left on a bike ride last night at 8 pm and I haven’t seen him since. He did not take his phone, wallet or keys. I don’t know what route he was taking. He was riding a rust-colored brand new 10 speed type bike. He is around 6’1″, 215 lbs, dirty blond hair, hazel eyes. I believe he could have flipped his bike, or it could have broken since it was his first time riding. Or he could be dehydrated or disoriented. relying on facebook.

A search has been done near the Susquehanna River near the trail off Sixth Street. A helicopter, hovercraft and rescue crews checked all along the river for him.
Stark worked as a sub-contracted stage manager for the FOOD network and now works at the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical center.
