 HILLSVILLE — Plans to search for a missing man by air were grounded when the subject turned up at a residence in Laurel Fork on Wednesday.

After about two days since Tom Funderburke of Misty Pine Lane went missing, Carroll officials had planned to use a helicopter to recheck part of the county for the 82-year-old Laurel Fork resident, Sheriff Warren Manning said.

The flyover was delayed by poor visibility and, in the meantime, Funderburke showed up at a home on Little Valley Road just before noon.
