I wanted to share a “Good News Story” about our Civil Servants, MS Conservation officers.

IMG_0501MDWFP Conservation Officers Rescue Missing Man MDWFP Conservation Officers recently rescued Jordan Taylor in a heavily wooded area .5 mile from Hebron Road in Holmes County. On July 19 at 2:30 p.m., Conservation Officers received a call from the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office for assistance in locating Taylor who was last seen by family members early morning of July 18. Conservation Officers Jason Blaylock, Derrick Scott, and Phillip Fancher initiated an immediate search of Taylor’s last known location. During the search, the officers discovered tracks, broken switch cane, and articles of clothing. Later that afternoon Scott located Taylor lying on the ground unable to walk, semiconscious, and dehydrated. Fancher and Scott cleared an access area while Blaylock and EMS medical personnel carried Taylor several hundred yards to an awaiting medical transport. Taylor was transported to a hospital for treatment. “Due to the extreme heat and other conditions it is highly probable that Mr. Taylor would not have made it through the night,” said Col. Steve Adcock, MDWFP Chief of Law Enforcement. “Once again our Officers’ determination and training have saved another life,” Adcock added.
