ALLEGAN, Mich. (WOOD) — The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve found a Mississippi man reported missing in Allegan.

Hours after sending out a news release to the media, authorities said Monday that Anthony Lee Wright had been located and is safe.

Wright, 48, had been missing since April 27. An acquaintance told investigators that Wright stayed at the Budget Host Inn for a night, but had nowhere to go after that, so he planned to stay in the woods on April 28. 

The acquaintance said Wright said he had fallen and hurt himself. However, investigators said Wright never showed up at a hospital or contacted anyone after that.

It’s unclear where Wright was found.
