Crews Find Eastern Kentucky Man, Missing Overnight

Search crews located a missing 75-year-old southeastern Kentucky man after searching for him in the overnight hours.

Crews searched into the overnight hours using search dogs in the Page community of Bell County.

They were looking for Eulis Fuson. His niece says he suffers from Alzheimer's and Schizophrenia and needs daily medication.

When the sun came up Wednesday morning, a National Guard helicopter spotted Fuson a few hundred yards from his home.

Crews say they believe he only suffered hypothermia and a few cuts and bruises. Fuson was flown to UT Medical Center in Knoxville for treatment.

    I am glad they found Mr. Fuson. Question? The man that was missing in Bourbon County was not talked about much. He also suffered from Schizophrenia and other medical problems. I only saw Mr. Brown on the news once and that was the 11:00 PM News. They did find him but the outcome was not as good.

    This is a good story to show why the Kentucky Guard needs more helicopters. We do not have our fair share of chopper as do the surrounding states. Some of which have 3 to 4 times more aircraft. Call your congressman.

    Just ignore negative comments!! Some people have no clue, and Anonymous must be one of them! Glad this story had a happy ending, and I'm glad we have so many dedicated responders, both paid and volunteer, that always turn out to help in these situations. Thanks for a job well done!

    My response to "Anonymous from kentucky" Since you are the smartest person on earth, What would you have done and what should we have done different? The temp was in the low teens and there was alot of mountains and road to cover, Plus some of us got shot at. My question is to you "Anonymous from Kentucky" Where was you during this search and Why was'nt you out there searching? It's people like you that sit's at home and complains, instead out there doing something about it. To everbody that was out there last night and this morning with us, i would like to say thank you and a job well done.

    That is crazy that they searched for him only to find him a few hundred yards from his home. How hard did they search?
