ACSO: Missing Person found unharmed at Holmes Bend
By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office
On Friday, July 3, 2020, at 7:55pmCT, Adair County Sheriff's Deputy Derek Padgett, who was patrolling Green River Lake for the holiday weekend, was approached by a camper from Woodford County. The female advised that they had a 54 year old male family member with dementia who had left their campsite on foot, and they were unable to find him.
The lake was busy with all campsites occupied to capacity as well as visitors and boaters who had come to the lake for the holiday weekend. Deputy Padgett notified emergency management director Mike Keltner of the situation, and Keltner started activating additional resources to respond to the scene while Deputies Padgett and Durbin started the initial search.
Deputy Emergency Management Director Chad Weat arrived on scene along with members of the Columbia-Adair County Fire Department. Emergency services along with several campers who volunteered their assistance set out and began to search.
Aproximately 1 hour later, the missing man was found safe and unharmed. He was returned to his campsite with his family.
The Sheriff's Office is thankful for all who came out and helped and volunteered, including emergency services and fellow campers.
