A missing Vermont man has been found alive after three days of searching. Thursday afternoon, police said Donald Gurney, 65, of Springfield, was found in Cavendish. Search crews found Gurney in the woods near Knapp Pond at around 3:30 p.m., about 1.5 miles away from where they found his truck. Vermont State Police say he was dehydrated but otherwise appeared to be in fair condition. Crews carried Gurney out of the woods and he was sent to the Springfield Hospital to get checked out. Vermont State Police believe Gurney went out for a drive and became disoriented, parked his truck and set off on foot. Officials say he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. Monday morning he drove his truck to the end of a dead-end road in Cavendish and parked it next to a seasonal camp, no one was there and that is where his truck was found. A command center was set up at the Cavendish Fire department and authorities had been searching for him for three days. Multiple agencies from across the region took part in the three-day search, including the Army National Guard searching by air. Police say about 60 people helped search on Wednesday.
