Missing Person Located:
Thomas A. Mann, DOB 6/3/57
611 Herchel Drive
Temple Terrace, FL
On June 8, 2011, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Mr. Mann parked his car in the parking area of Wilderness Park on Morris Bridge Road. Mr. Mann started walking south into the woods and a short time later he became disoriented and was unable to find his way back. He continued to wonder through the woods until after dark when he eventually tired and fell asleep. When he woke this morning, he again tried to find his way until he became dehydrated and further disoriented and could no longer walk.
At approximately 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, deputies with the Special Incident Response Team, who are highly trained to conduct search and rescue operations were on ATVs when they rolled up on Mr. Mann several miles into the woods. Mr. Mann was brought out of the woods and is being provided medical attention for extreme exhaustion and dehydration. Once medically cleared, he will be reunited with his family.
