Authorities in Maine rescued a missing 66-year-old man from Merrill on Tuesday night.

Bryce Clark had last been seen on Monday in Oakfield, the Maine Warden Service said. He spoke to family and friends late Monday night and early Tuesday morning saying his vehicle had broken down.

Game wardens began searching for Clark on Tuesday afternoon in the St. Croix Lake area in central Aroostook County, where he was known to frequent. They were able to use his cell phone data to narrow the area of the search, and a volunteer searcher found his disabled Ford Explorer around 8 p.m. on a discontinued logging road.

About an hour later, after tracking him through the mud, game wardens found Clark and his dog. He was down, disoriented and extremely dehydrated, the Maine Warden Service said.

Clark was taken to an awaiting ambulance and transported to Houlton Regional Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.

Ten game wardens and another 20 volunteers participated in Tuesday's search.
