Coordinated search pays off

BRUNSWICK, Ohio - An 81-year-old Brunswick man is recovering from hypothermia, after he got lost in the woods while hunting when severe storms struck.

Police in Brunswick Hills said the family of Lloyd Hall reported him missing Monday afternoon, when the 81-year-old didn't show up for his 4 p.m. ride home after hunting off Sleepy Hollow Road.

Heavy rain then began to fall, which authorities think contributed to Hall's lost sense of direction.

Two initial search efforts failed to locate Hall, but the third time was the charm. Brunswick Hills police and fire requested mutual aid and scoured the wooded area. The search team finally found Hall alive near a natural gas pipeline.

Firefighters carried Hall out of the woods and rushed him to Southwest General Hospital. The Medina-Gazette reported Hall was found around 10:45 p.m. stuck in thigh-deep mud.

Hall is recovering from hypothermia. His family thanked authorities for rescuing their loved one.
