SUMTER, S.C. (WIS) - Investigators said Millard Hunter was located safely Thursday at around 12:45 p.m.

Someone at the education building at Shaw AFB recognized him and was able to notify authorities. Hunter is with his family and receiving medical attention.


The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding a missing man who suffers from memory loss.

Millard Hunter, 61, experienced a head injury last year which causes memory loss and confusion. He is a veteran and accessed Shaw AFB on Wednesday at 5 p.m. but has not been seen since.

On Thursday morning, deputies confirmed that Millard picked up his RV recently from a maintenance shop. The RV was found shortly after, stuck in a wooded area near his home.

Millard may be on foot in the area of Shaw AFB or off the base. He was last seen wearing a gray and black t-shirt and blue jeans.

Millard is described as 5′7″ and weighs about 175 pounds. He has gray hair and blue eyes.

Deputies say Millard may be afraid and unaware of his surroundings.
