Missing Hunter Found 10 pm, Thanksgiving Night

December 2nd, 2013 by

zzAs most Drew County residents (it seemed) were at Walmart for the early Black Friday sale, local law enforcement and firefighters were on in the cold, dark night, searching for a lost elderly man, hoping to make this a “Thanksgiving to remember,” for a Miracle, instead of a tragedy, for his family.

A 69 year old man, believed to have been hunting near Sixteen Section Road and HWY 278 East, was reported missing to MPD Dispatch around 8 pm, Thanksgiving night.

The man’s 4-wheeler was found overturned near a creek, but he was not around it.

Drew County Sheriff’s Deputies, Collins-Cominto Fire Dept. members, Arkansas Game & Fish officers, and members of the Monticello Fire Dept. quickly began a search, wich included crossing a freezing creek in the dark night, looking for the lost man.

The hunter was located at around 10 pm, checked out  by EMTs, and released.

Thank you for your hard work and service to our community and the gentleman’s family, preventing a tragedy and providing a miracle.
