Missing Emporia man found

GREENSVILLE COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - The Greensville County Sheriff’s Office says a missing man who they say suffers from some mental disabilities has been found safe.

Officials said he is in “good spirits” and needs some medical attention, but nothing serious.

Deputies did not have any further details regarding where and how he was found.

The sheriff’s office had been searching with K9s for several days Clarence Nix of Emporia, and the family was offering a $10,000 reward.

“Mr. Nix suffers from some mental disabilities and we are very concerned for his wellbeing,” a release said.

He was last seen heading in the direction of Interstate 95 at Exit 13 and Otterdam Road on July 17.

Deputies said he was considered a missing person and in danger due to the weather conditions and the terrain he might be in.
