State Police Continue Search for Missing Gaylord Man

UPDATE 8/11/20 6:41 a.m.: The Michigan State Police post in Gaylord has a grim update—the man they have been searching for since Sunday was found dead near Clear Lake Monday night.

State police are now looking from the air for a missing Gaylord man who suffers from dementia.

Troopers says Nelson Wheaton was last seen on Saturday night between 6 and 7, and was riding his green Polaris Ranger four-wheeler on Beechnut Trail.

He was wearing a straw hat, a short sleeve shirt and dark shorts.

Troopers say he left his phone, wallet and hearing aids at home.

If you’ve seen him, call state police or your local emergency dispatch.
