The employees of Maple Ridge and the Lincoln Police Department
conducted a primary search of the area. The Lincoln Fire Department,
Lincoln Rural Fire Department, Logan County Sheriff's Department,
Logan County EMA, Air Evac, Logan County Paramedic Association, and
numerous volunteers from the Logan County SAR (Horse) Team and the
Middletown Fire Department conducted a further search of the area.
Members of the Lincoln Rural Fire Department later found the man
walking out of a cornfield on Nicholson Road, approximately one-half
mile from Lincoln Parkway.

The Logan County Paramedic Association took the man to Abraham
Lincoln Memorial Hospital for evaluation due to his health problems
and the cool night air, which he was not dressed for.
If it weren't for all of the departments and volunteers working
together, the incident might not have come to a quick ending and the
final results might not have been as good as they were.
