KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (TND) — A man in Tennessee has quite the survival story to tell.

Taylor Boyle disappeared last Sunday, Oct. 15.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office said family members had not spoken to him since 10 a.m., so they filed a missing person report.

Authorities posted photos of him and his motorcycle online, in hopes somebody with information would call.

WBIR reported Boyle never made it to his destination and friends grew suspicious. It turned out, he had crashed his motorcycle and was apparently unable to move or call for help.

Searchers concentrated around the route Boyle would’ve taken and late Tuesday, they found his bike. Then, they found Boyle. The area was so dark that they had to use flashlights.

They called 911 and first responders pulled Boyle out.

WBIR quoted one friend who said,

“He seemed to be pretty coherent and awake and not in pain. So I think we really lucked up this time.”
