Missing man, teen found in Fayette County

LAGRANGE, Tenn. (AP) -- Rescuers have found two people who got lost in a West Tennessee wildlife reserve.

WMC-TV reported a helicopter crew spotted 29-year-old Justin Willingham and 17-year-old Cody Hanford on Monday morning in a Fayette County wildlife management area near LaGrange. The two left a wedding on Saturday and texted friends that they were going geocaching on the game reserve. Geocaching is a game in which participants use a GPS device to locate a hidden cache of trinkets and sign a log.

The station reported Willingham and Hanford heard the helicopter and ran into a shallow pond so they would be seen from the air.

The station reported Willingham is the WKNO radio host of the NPR news program "All Things Considered."
