East Texas Man Missing During Rainy Weekend Found In Woods

TYLER (AP) - An East Texas man missing since Friday has been rescued from a creek after apparently spending a rainy weekend lost in some woods.

Tyler police Officer Don Martin says 56-year-old Alexander Guiliano was located Monday. He's hospitalized in stable condition.

Martin says a landowner Friday morning reported finding a motorcycle on a dirt road. Officers searched an 80-acre (32.376-hectare) area thick with trees and brush. Police coordinated with Guiliano's relatives, who'd filed a missing person report.

Guiliano's family on Monday morning located him a-half mile from where his cycle was found, but needed help getting him out of a creek.

Martin says Guiliano told officers that he was at a Tyler nightclub Thursday night and early Friday, left on his motorcycle, later parked the bike and wandered into the woods.
