According to Sheriff Terry Miller of the Clay County Sheriff’s Department, they received a call on Saturday morning, May 16, about a gentleman from Greene County who had put his boat into the water at Brookings on Friday morning. “He was out fishing and everything and apparently he had motor trouble or something,” Miller explained. The gentleman spent nearly 30 hours on the water in a slough until help arrived. When the call came in, they gathered the Task Force Team and along with the Task Force Unit out of Randolph County Arkansas Game and Fish, private pilot Chris Scrogin and Survival Flight to scour the river looking for the man. The last time his cell phone had pinged was Friday at noon. He was found about two o'clock Saturday afternoon. The Sheriff said, “From what they said, he hollered pretty good when he saw him coming through the woods. I'm just glad it turned out that way.”
