A missing man with serious medical issues and strong ties to the Mid-Michigan area has been found safe. 

Crawford County Sheriff’s Office said Robert Knapp was found safe Thursday after surviving five nights and six days out in the elements. He was located near Granger Road in Oscoda County. The Grayling man was last seen Saturday afternoon at his home near Lovells. 

Knapp was taken to Munson Hospital for dehydration and some other issues, according to police.
