BUCKHANNON -

Supporters of a missing Upshur County man staged a protest outside the courthouse in Buckhannon Friday.

It's been more than a month since Luke Stout, 24, was reported missing.

Stout's family said his disappearance could be connected to the death of the Joshua Oberg.

The protesters said volunteers want to help look for Stout but that the police are turning them away.

The state police said they're still following up on leads but that they can't confirm a connection between Stout and Oberg.

A preliminary hearing for the three men charged with Oberg's murder is set for next week.
