A Michigan State Police K-9 recently located a missing 80-year-old man, according to Click on Detroit.

At about 6:40 p.m. on Wednesday (November 16), Lovells Township woman told police that she believed her 80-year-old husband was lost, according to the outlet. He had been tracking a deer, and she hadn't seen him for about three hours. She said she got worried when he fired several shots, which was a sign that he was lost.

Troopers brought out K-9 Loki from the MSP Houghton Lake post, as well as an aviation unit, to search for the man, according to Click on Detroit. Loki and the troopers tracked the man and found him alongside the North Branch of the Au Sable River, about 0.66 miles away from his home.

When they found the hunter, he was very cold and wet, as he had fallen into the river three times, according to Click on Detroit. He was wearing waders and wet clothing, and a trooper gave the man his dry fatigue shirt, gloves and a coat. Then, firefighters took the man out of the woods in a canoe.

Despite everything, the man was unharmed, according to Click on Detroit. He was brought to the Grayling Munson Hospital for treatment and was discharged in good health.
