LAGRANGE, Maine — An elderly York man who had been missing since noon on Saturday was found safe in LaGrange early Sunday afternoon, according to police.

A Maine Forest Service helicopter operator spotted Taylor’s white 2003 Ford F150 pickup off Howland Road about noon Sunday after nearby residents called police Sunday morning to report hearing a vehicle’s horn.

The truck was located about a quarter mile into the woods. Taylor had a left a home in Hudson on Saturday to go to a nearby store and never showed up. He had traveled about 25 miles.

Penobscot County sheriff’s deputies and Maine State Police troopers were involved in the ground search for Taylor.
