— A new tool will be used to try to find a missing Cumberland County man.

The CUE Center for Missing Persons asked an Ohio company to bring ground-penetrating radar to search for Kent Jacobs' body.

Jacobs was last seen in Hope Mills more than a year ago.

The equipment responds to buried remains as well as changes in soil composition, compaction and water distribution.
