the action may then
proceed, and my report to the Court on
efforts to contact you
must be made not later
than fifty days from the
date of my appointment. If you do or do not wish
to defend this action,
or if you are under
any legal disability preventing such defense,
such facts should be
of record in the case
with any contemplated
action taken timely as
indicated above.
Because I was appointed Warning Order Attorney by the
Letcher Circuit Court,
I do not represent you
personally in the case;
my duties are confined
to diligently attempting
to notify you of the
pending action.
If anyone knows the
whereabouts of the
above- named individuals or their heirs,
devisees, assignees,
and spouses thereof,
please contact me at
606-634-9600 within
14 days of the date
of publication of this
issue of The Mountain
Eagle.
