Game Wardens rescued a 66-year-old man last night, Aug. 31, who was found extremely dehydrated and disoriented but conscious.
Game Wardens began searching for Bryce Clark of Merrill, yesterday afternoon in the St. Croix Lake area of Aroostook county. He had gone missing the night before. Game wardens were able to use his cell phone data to narrow the area of the search, and at approximately 8:00 p.m. last night, a volunteer searcher found Clark’s disabled Ford Explorer on a discontinued logging road.
Game Wardens were able to track Clark through the mud for approximately ½ mile, and then made voice contact with Clark and heard his barking dog at approximately 9:00 p.m.
Clark was down, disorientated, extremely dehydrated, but conscious. He was barefoot and his small dog was with him. Wardens and volunteers cleared logs and brush out of the old road so a Jeep 4×4 could transport Clark to an awaiting ambulance. He was transported by Ambulance to the Houlton Regional Hospital at approximately 11:00 p.m. where he was in stable condition
Clark had last been seen Monday in Oakfield, and spoke to family and friends late Monday night and early Tuesday morning stating his vehicle broke down.
The Maine Warden Service led the search that included 10 game wardens and approximately 20 volunteers.
