LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. - After a giant mix-up, a missing hunter was located safely.  He was in the Limestone County Jail.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Department told WHNT News 19 that 50-year-old Randy Keith Holt was arrested for public intoxication just after 2 p.m. on Monday.

Officials said that family members were unaware that Holt had been arrested and reported him missing.

Once officers were made aware of the missing man's last name, they located him and called off the search.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Department, ALEA, and multiple fire crews are searching for a missing hunter near the Arrowhead Landing boat ramp off of Old Hwy 20, which is just west of Mooresville and not far from the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge.

The missing hunter is a 50-year-old man who is now three hours late from returning from his hunting trip.

Authorities are coordinating with Huntsville Air Traffic Control to bring in a low flying helicopter to do searches from the air.

Search crews are also using dogs at this time to look for the missing man.

According to authorities, the last contact that anyone had with the missing hunter was at noon on Monday.

At this time, authorities said they don't believe the missing hunter was carrying a cell phone, so they are unable to track him that way.
