Missing Elderly Adams Man Found Safe
ADAMS TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A missing elderly man was located safely after a two-day search in the Adams, Tennessee area.
Franklin Luppe Sr, 83, was found approximately one mile from his home on Wednesday morning. Other than suffering from dehydration, he was in good health and spirits.
More than 100 people from multiple law enforcement and first responder agencies along with volunteers from the community assisted in his search. The search area covered a nine-square-mile area around his home at 1000 North Stroudsville Road.
He was found by a team of volunteers led by K9 Deputy Vallejos with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. One of the volunteers heard a noise in an area covered by tall grass near a creek. When they went to investigate the noise, they discovered Luppe.
