Missing man is found alive

66-year-old Gerald Keith Bush has been found. According to the Wolfe County Search and Rescue Coordinator, Eddie Conner, Bush was found just moments ago in a new part of the search area.

Conner says Bush is alive, "but barely."

According to a rescuer, Bush was found on a trail "some distance" away from where he was last seen. The crews caught this break after a highly-specialized bloodhound tracked Bush's scent.

At this time, Bush is being taken to a helicopter where he is expected to be flown to U.K. Hospital.

Bush, who suffers from Alzheimer's and dementia, has been missing since Monday where he was last seen wondering away from a bench where family members left him while they hiked a trail.
