Elderly Sawyer Co. hunter reported missing found safe

Posted: Updated:
SAWYER COUNTY, WI -

An elderly hunter who went missing in Sawyer County over the weekend has been found safe.

The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office says they received a call just before 9:30 Saturday night about an 83-year-old man who hadn't returned home, after hunting on the West Fork of the Chippewa River near Moose Lake.

A staging area was set up at the Round Lake Fire Department, while several agencies responded to the area. The man's vehicle was eventually found near the staging area, and ground crews made voice contact with the hunter minutes later. 

Deputies say he was found in good condition and had become lost in the dark.
