Silver Alert Canceled – Fort Kent Man Found Safe
Fort Kent Police have canceled a Silver Alert after Maine Wardens found a missing man safe.
Stanley Flagg, 81 disappeared sometime after 9:00 Sunday morning and was believed to have wandered away from a location near his home on Franklin School Road. Police say he's likely on foot. Flagg suffers from some cognitive issues and is also visually impaired.
Three game wardens found Flagg dehydrated and disoriented Tuesday afternoon, deep in the woods, but otherwise okay. Game Warden K9 Gordon and Warden Preston Pomerleau, with Game Wardens James Gushee and Brandon Sperry were searching the Spaulding Brook drainage area after a Maine Search and Rescue after a Maine Search and Rescue volunteer and their rescue dog found a slipper. The three wardens were searching the area when Gushee thought he heard a voice and then saw a man stand up. He called out "Stanley!" and rushed towards him.
The Wardens gave Flagg Gatorade and water, and then he was checked out by medical personnel. Officials say he was talkative, but was unsure how he got there, or how long he had been in the woods. His tractor was found about 3/4's of a mile away. Flagg was carried out by a team of game wardens and volunteers to a waiting ambulance, and then transported to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent.
