(AP) — Rescuers, spurred by their success in raising Henry Throne, 28, and David Fellin, 58, from a coal mine cave in, drove a 12-inch shaft about 305 feet through earth, rock and coal into a void today, searching for Louis Bova, 54, missing since Aug. 13 in the same mishap. Meanwhile drilling of two other probes was under way. Mine officials said the drill on the 65-ton rig broke through into some kind of chamber about 6:15 a.m. The officials said they would be unable to say if it was successful in reaching Bova until the drill pipe was removed and microphones and possibly a camera place "for quite some time." Fraundorf said a report by the two investigating deputies of their arrest of Combs and the latter's actions at the cafe on the officer's arrival was available to newsmen later Tuesday morning. He said Deputy Louis Bowman reported he received a phone call from Combs after 10 a.m. Tuesday requesting that information on his arrest be withheld from newspapers but the deputy said he "had no control over newspapers." I could be lowered, in a matter of hours. The drill started at 5:45 a.m. Tuesday, but drilling was halted by a six-hour breakdown. Kit Void Officials said they hit the void al Ihe spot Fellin told them to drill. Fellin had also directed the miners where to sink a successful 18-inch escape shaft to him and Throne. A three-inch probe reached 132 feet at 7 a.m., said officials. A six-inch shaft, started early today, hit 88 feet by 7 a.m. Meanwhile mine officials said they plan to close the mine for safety reasons. The six-inch shaft is similar to the one which reached Fellin and Throne Aug. 18 and sewed them as a life line until they were pulled to safety before a cheering throng Tuesday morning. Bova has had no food since the day of the cave-in, but may have some water from seepage. Fellin reported he made contact with Bova Aug. 20, but some officials questioned the contact. No direct communications were ever established with Bova. Optimistic Fellin and Throne are convinced their buddy is alive. Fellin is so sure, he has volunteered to return to the scene of his entombment SEARS ROEBUCK AND CO.
