By  | 

WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - A missing man found alive Friday morning in Clark County has died.

The Clark County Coroner says Kenneth Davis, 76, died Friday at Clark Regional Medical Center.

Investigators say Davis' wife reported him missing Thursday.

After several hours of searching, crews found Davis around midnight on Thursday in a ravine near an ATV off Schollsville Road and Mountain View Lane. The crash happened around a mile away from his home.
Investigators say they found Davis by pinging his cellphone.

A medical helicopter could not fly to the scene because of dense fog, according to the Clark County Fire Department. He was transported by ambulance to Clark Regional Medical Center where he later died.

Police say they are not sure where Davis was going when he crashed but friends say he was most likely tracking down his cattle on his farm.

Davis’ daughter says that her father loved to farm and his passion poured over into the way he treated others. She released the following statement after her father’s death.

"My father has been a farmer all his life and even though he was retired from IBM in Lexington, he still continued to farm because that is what he truly loved doing. He was a great father, grandfather, friend, and neighbor to those who knew him. He will be truly missed."

Family and friends say Davis was very respected in his community and will be very missed.
