STARKS, Maine — Maine game wardens have found a missing 83-year-old Starks man.

Robert Hooker was alive and alert when he was found about a half-mile from his home.

Hooker, who had been missing since Sunday afternoon, was found near a bog after a search by air, land and with search dogs. He was wet, likely from the rain that hit the central Maine area Sunday evening.

Hooker was last seen at about 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Warden Service was assisted by the Starks Fire Department and Mercer Rescue.
