|Red arrow points to where Stick Man was found|
Inkey Wells, 75, of rural Bridgeport, had gone down to the river to look for beavers and watch the log jam float by, when he heard a tiny cry for help, coming from a passing log. Wells grabbed his binoculars and quickly located the tiny Stick Man waving at him from a knothole in one of the logs. After shouting for his wife to join him, they called the authorities and help was soon on the way. The log Stick Man was found on, had traveled two miles down river from where he was last seen yesterday by Bridgeport resident, Art Fisher.
"I'm elated!" Fisher told OFF THE WALL NEWS. "I didn't think I would ever see him again, but now that he has been found alive, those feelings have been erased!"

"As it turned out, he made the journey in pretty good shape, considering the dangers he faced" one bystander was quoted as saying. Another replied, "Yeah that guy has had some hard knocks in life, but it's plane to see, he's tough and you don't want to rub him the wrong way."
