Firefighters and police in Superior spent more than seven hours searching for a man reported missing just after noon Wednesday near Lake Superior and Dutchman’s Creek. The Superior Police Department reported that the man had been found about 7:30 p.m.
Police received a report at 12:15 from a woman who said she was walking with her boyfriend Wednesday morning near Dutchman Creek. She said they were headed toward their car when they got separated.
Responders, including the Coast Guard, Civil Air Patrol and a St. Louis County Search and Rescue team, searched the area where Moccasin Mike Road ends at Lake Superior near the creek mouth. It’s an area southeast of Superior and its landfill.
The man was found about a mile east of the creek at 7:30 p.m. Responders walked the man out of the heavily wooded area. He was suffering from signs of hypothermia, police said, and was sent to a hospital for evaluation.
