Update!!! Missing Cave City man found dead

Sunday, June 13, 2010 ~ Updated 10:52 AM

Silas Lucas, a Cave City nursing home resident was located just minutes ago. After a day and a half search, Lucas' body was recovered behind the Cave City High School.

Crews tirelessly searched for Lucas after he walked away from the nursing home early June 12. The crews searched into the night with hopes finding Lucas alive.

The Cave City Fire Department, along with surrounding departments, Sharp County Sheriff's Department, K-9 units and volunteers are very thankful for all the assistance in the search.

That's why nursing homes have monitors for pt's that wander. So they don't get lost and die.
