A search team discovered a Duluth man missing for more than 7 hours on Wednesday.
The Superior Police department says Vyacheslav Shcherbin was reported missing by his girlfriend after they became separated walking back to their vehicle early Wednesday morning near Dutchman's Creek. That's north of the Superior landfill.
A search team located Shcherbin around 7:30 p.m. about a mile east of Dutchman's Creek.
Authorities say he appeared to be suffering from the beginning stages of hypothermia and was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
Members of the Superior Police and Fire Departments along with the U.S. Coast Guard, St. Louis County Sheriff's Office and the Civil Air Patrol assisted in the search.
Note: The Superior Police Department wanted to note that Shcherbin was not a wanted man, but the mugshot was the only photo they had of him.
