LAWRENCE (KSNT) – At 12:20 Friday afternoon Larry Baecht, the subject of an earlier Silver Alert was located in a rural area southeast of Lawrence.
He was spotted by workers near the site of the South Lawrence Trafficway construction, over two and a half miles from the fair grounds.
Deputies and a Lawrence Douglas County Fire and Medical ambulance quickly responded and found Baecht in fair condition. He has been transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for a thorough health assessment.
He apparently left the Douglas County fair Thursday night around 7:00 and drove his electric scooter until the battery died. Sheriff’s deputies, the Kansas Highway Patrol helicopter, and Lawrence Police officers searched earnestly for him until he was located.
