A man that was reported missing from Carthage over the weekend has been found alive and well near Grand Lake. Nicky Newell had been homeless, but was staying at a group home in Carthage when he was reported missing by his caretaker. Carthage Police Officer Chad Dininger tells News Talk KZRG he was discovered Monday by the Grand River Dam Authority Police.
“They were patrolling and came across him living in a tent. They discovered that he was a missing person, check him out and he was fine. We had been getting reports that he was catching rides from people to different locations so he ended up there and we’ve removed him as a missing person.”
Dininger thanked the public for all of their help in locating Newell.
