Flare leads searchers to missing hunter

Posted: Updated:

CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A flare led authorities to a missing hunter Tuesday night.

The man failed to return home Tuesday after a hunting excursion in the Henryville area.

Clark County officials searched on the ground without luck, so they asked Louisville Metro police to assist by air. That's how they were able to spot the flare and locate the hunter.

There was no immediate word on his condition.
