Beaver County authorities on Wednesday located an 82-year-old man who had been missing since Tuesday.

Authorities said they found Byron Stratton, of Beaver, alive, but stranded in the snow on a U.S. Forest Service road, northeast of Beaver. Authorities said the sheriff’s office, the county’s search and rescue team, along with the Department of Public Safety and a private helicopter hired by Stratton’s family spotted the man about 4 p.m. near his pickup truck.

Stratton was cold and thirsty when rescuers reached him, and rescuers provided him with plenty of blankets and liquids, officials said. He was then transported to a local hospital for treatment, but was expected to recover from the ordeal, officials said.
