Search and Rescue Locate Missing Man in St. Tammany Parish

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents and St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office (STPSO) deputies performed a successful search and rescue on May 30, 2019 in St. Tammany Parish.
Agents and deputies were called around 3:30 p.m. about a missing man lost on or near the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area. Two men were riding an ATV on the WMA trail to access some private property that was just purchased. After the ATV couldn’t get any further because the brush was too thick, the property owner decided to leave the ATV and the other man behind and try to access his property on foot around 11 a.m.

The agents and deputies began searching for the missing 65-year-old Lacombe man around 4 p.m. After a few hours, the rescuers and the missing man were able to hear each other in the distance. With the help of a K-9 unit, agents and deputies were able to reach the man around 8:15 p.m. When the rescuers found the man he was dehydrated and tired and they were only able to walk in 20 to 50 yards segments before taking a break.

The rescuers were able to get the missing man back to Oil Field Road around midnight where EMS personnel were waiting to offer assistance. The man was checked by EMS personnel and released.
