Sabine Parish Sheriff's office reports they received notification yesterday just after 5:00 p.m. that an 83 year old man was missing from his residence off Corleyville Road in the Mount Carmel area.

The man had left his house in his truck, became stuck somewhere in the area and had started walking.

A command post was set up at Mount Carmel Baptist Church and a search was started.

The missing man was able to use his cell phone to call 911 and Sabine Parish Dispatch was eventually able to track his location. He was located on Goodson Creek, North of LA Highway 118 almost 4 hours later and was checked by EMS personnel at the church.
