RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police say they have located
a Texas trucker that has been missing since late April.
Authorities say 42-year-old Bobby Don Dooley of Sanger, Texas,
was found safe on Saturday morning at a truck stop along Interstate
64 in Louisa County.
He hadn't been heard from since he left his tractor-trailer the
truck stop on April 29 or 30. He had sent a text message of his
company saying he was quitting his job.
Police say Dooley was found after walking out of the woods
behind the truck stop and into the restaurant for a cup of coffee.
They say he had been sleeping in a makeshift tent in the woods for
the past week.
A trooper gave Dooley a ride to a bus station in Charlottesville
for a ride home to Texas.
