Missing Baileys Harbor man found safe

A man reported missing in the Town of Baileys Harbor Thursday evening was found safe after a brief search.   The Door County Sheriffs Office was contacted about a 76-year-old man who lived in the area of County Highway Q and Birch Road had gone hiking and not returned.  A search was organized and the subject was located by a conservation warden at 8:46 PM, about three hours after the Sheriffs Office was notified.  Wardens helped the man out of the woods, turned him over to paramedics, who then took him home.  The Sheriffs Office says the search area was a large, road-less tract of heavily wooded land. Search efforts were further
hampered by darkness and poor cell phone coverage. The subject told responders he had been walking on a trail and had lost his bearings. Other than being cold, he was not injured.
