The Cherokee County Man Reported Missing Friday Morning Has Been Found Safe.

Emergency personnel initiated a search for a missing person in the area of County Road 89, between Blanche and Watson’s Crossroads during the early morning hours of Friday. A caller reported they had awoken to find that the door was open, and the 61 year old male subject in the home, George Edward Hall, Sr., who suffers with dementia – was gone.

The call went out around 5:40am and at that point it appeared the subject had already been gone for a short period of time. He was reportedly last seen wearing blue jeans and either a plaid shirt or blue denim shirt. Additional manpower was called in to help with the search a short time later.

Around 10:30am, Hall was confirmed to have been found safe and sound at a Waffle House Restaurant in Rome, Georgia and a Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office official was dispatched to the location to bring Hall home.

It’s unclear at this point how he traveled from his home on County Road 89 to Floyd County, Georgia.
