A Yazoo County man and his granddaughter who were reported missing have been found safe.
Luther Waters, 70, and his three-year-old granddaughter last spoke to their families about 5 a.m. Thursday from Waters’ cell phone, which is no longer turned on.
“When he last spoke with his family, he said his truck was stuck in a ditch,” said Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department. “The family tried to get directions to his location, but his cell phone cut out. They haven’t heard from him since.”
Gann said investigators were searching the Eden area, where they believed Waters and his grandchild may have been traveling. They were both found safe in Clinton over the weekend.
