Missing Hagerstown man found
Searchers on Tuesday morning found an 81-year-old Hagerstown man who had been reported missing a day earlier.
"At first, we thought he was dead but when we roused him and warmed him up, he was alert," Hagerstown Police Chief Arthur Smith said shortly after the man was found in a wooded area adjacent to Brewer Avenue.
Just before 11 a.m., Community Rescue Service took the man to Washington County Hospital where he was treated for exposure and later released, hospital officials said.
The man had been the subject of a Potomac River search Monday nigh. Rescue workers in boats and a helicopter had checked the river in case he jumped off the U.S. 11 bridge at Williamsport, as first suspected.
