Hundreds gathered in rural Akron today to help search for an 82-year-old man who was reported missing Saturday night.

The family of Stewart Harris noticed he didn't return home after riding his ATV Saturday night to go check irrigation units. His family became concerned and started looking for him and discovered his ATV but couldn't find him.

Harris was located in a cornfield shortly after 2 PM, nearly 17 hours after he went missing.
He was in good condition, aside from exhaustion and dehydration. He was taken to Mercy Medical in Sioux City for observation.
