Search for missing race fan widens to 2nd campsite

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — The sister of a Georgia man last seen in a campground outside Talladega Superspeedway says the search has expanded to another campground near the track after a tip from another race fan.

Searchers have been using tracking dogs, boats, aircraft, and four-wheelers in an attempt to find 28-year-old Nicholas Bower of Villa Rica, Ga.

Bower came to the NASCAR race at Talladega with his girlfriend, but went missing from the South Park campground outside the raceway on Saturday night. There's been no indication of foul play, but authorities say they don't know what happened.

His older sister Bridget Chambers tells the Anniston Star (http://bit.ly/YK4VHY ) that the search shifted to the West Park campsite after a race fan called in a tip placing Bower in that area around midnight.
