SULLIVAN, Ind. (AP) - A southwestern Indiana man who went missing during a hunting trip was later found by his rescuers with an injured leg.

Indiana conservation officers say 74-year-old Richard Wiseman of Dugger became disoriented Sunday and injured one of his legs, leaving him unable to walk.

The Tribune-Star reports (https://bit.ly/1K1LUq2 ) that Wiseman’s hunting partner called conservation officers worried after Wiseman failed to return from hunting.

Multiple agencies began a search of the area along with tracking dogs. Wiseman was found with a leg injury that prevented him from walking and finding his way out of the wooded area.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
