CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Lonoke County Sheriff's department reported that Willard E. Moran also known as "DC McGehee" was not arrested, though he was handcuffed for a short time.
Moran was reported missing Friday morning, December 7, after missing work and not calling in. Family members searched his residence and couldn't find him. It then appeared to be suspicious to the family members that his vehicle was still in the driveway. Moran was found later that night sleeping in a "safe room" in the attic of his home.
Moran was victim of a burglary a few weeks ago. Many in the community wondered if there was a 24-hour missing person rule. Lt. James Kulesa said that there has never been any regulation for a missing person after 24-hours, there is no time table.
A prosecutor will review the case to see in Moran will face any charges.
Alice 107.7 released this statement, "To all of our Alice 107.7 Friends and Fans, We are grateful that DC has been found and is OK. We are so thankful for the messages of support and concern for his safety and for his family. We are especially grateful to law enforcement from Lonoke County, Cabot and Arkansas State Troopers for their help during the search on Friday afternoon. We hope that you will continue to pray for DC and his family and friends as they work through challenges that lay ahead. We hope that you will also respect the privacy of the family members during this time of reconciliation and healing."
