Missing Effingham man found


An Effingham man that had been missing all day Thursday has finally been found.

George Hatfield was found around 10pm in the Rincon area.

"Shortly after 10 pm, fire crews and deputies located the missing person off of some railroad tracks. He appears to be okay, however he's been transported to hospital to go ahead and be evaluated. So this whole thing could have been a whole lot worse." said David Eshanapoor, ECSO Public Information Officer.

Authorities were searching around Rincon off of McCall Rd, south on Maple Dr.  They set up a search command post on Maple and Golden Dr.
