KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Mohave County authorities say an 87-year-old man who had been reported missing has been found alive in extreme northwestern Arizona about 25 miles south of St. George, Utah.

The Sheriff’s Office says Leroy Fitzell was flown to a hospital in St. George on Thursday after being found semi-conscious about 75 yards from where his car was found on a rural road.

Search and rescue crews found Fitzell in heavy brush after an aircraft deployed by Utah’s Washington County spotted his car on a Bureau of Land Management Road on the portion of Arizona known as the Arizona Strip.

He was last seen Tuesday.
