Holden man found after intense search

    A Holden man is lucky to be alive after he got lost in the woods during last night's bitter cold.

    A massive search by local, state and county law enforcement agencies began at about 7 p.m. when Joshua Webb did not return from a walk.

     Webb is autistic and had become disoriented according to Maine game wardens. Searchers followed fresh footprints in the snow along railroad tracks near Wilson Street.

    With the help of a Penobscot County K9, they located Webb about two miles into the woods near the Bagaduce road. He was cold, disoriented and not dressed for the extreme cold weather. Webb was transported to St Joseph's Hospital where he was treated for a substantially decreased body temperature.
