A missing person report on a 78-year-old unnamed man living in the 300 block of Safford Road in South Hill was cancelled Friday after the man was found in a nearby shed.

On Thursday, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s office received a report of a missing person. He was described as a 78-year-old white male who was last seen around 7:24 p.m. near the adult home where he resided.

Deputies working with the Virginia State Police K-9 unit commenced a search of the area, but when a storm blew in later that night the search was halted. The search resumed early the next morning and at 8 a.m., the man was located unharmed.

He appeared to have waited out the storm inside a shed located near the adult home.

After speaking with the victim and investigating the matter, Baisey arrested Lipscomb and transported him to Meherrin River Regional Jail where he was also served with a protective order. Lipscomb was released after he posted a $1,500 bond.

Clarence Jones, 66, of Clarksville was arrested Wednesday, for driving without a license after having been declared a habitual offender. Jones was initially stopped by Sgt. Andy Ramsey on Dockery Road in South Hill because the car which he was driving had expired tags.
