JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

This is a press release from the Jones County Fire Council.

Multiple units from various Jones County Volunteer Fire Departments were dispatched to a home on Tower Road in the Moselle community on Sunday for a search and rescue operation.

Firefighters and Emergency Medical Responders, along with Jones County Sheriff's deputies and a search and rescue K9 unit from Forrest County were advised that a man in his 40s had been missing since early Saturday morning. After the family of the man had searched the wooded areas surrounding his home and found nothing, emergency responders were called in to assist with the effort.

After hours of performing a grid search in surrounding areas for the missing man, firefighters were about to put the search on hold as nighttime was quickly approaching when a family member announced that they had located the man in a nearby trailer home that belonged to his daughter. The exact whereabouts of the man leading up to his discovery in the trailer home are unknown, but he was found alive and in stable condition.

As a part of routine procedure when an individual has been missing, especially for an extended period of time, Emergency Medical Responders with Jones County Volunteer Fire Departments assessed the man on scene, and stabilized him until medics with EMServ arrived. The man was then transported by EMServ ambulance to Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg for further treatment. 

Emergency personnel were on scene for about 10 hours. Calhoun Fire Chief Lee Garick was in charge of search and rescue operations, and Jones County Fishers Of Men provided food, snacks and drinks for rescue personnel.

Rescue personnel on scene included units from Calhoun, Moselle, South Jones, Southwest Jones, Boggy, Powers and Sandersville Volunteer Fire Departments, Jones County Sheriff's Department, Forrest County Search and Rescue, EMServ Ambulance Service and Jones County Fire Public Information Officer Caleb Worrell.
