The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office was asking for the public’s help locating a missing man. Richard Griffith Giles, 89, is 5’09”, 165 lbs., with hazel eyes, gray balding hair and a gray mustache and beard. Because of his age and the weather conditions authorities were concerned for his welfare. Giles is from Verndale and was seen at the Super 8 in Grand Rapids on Thursday, February 23, where he spent the night after he got lost. Giles purchased gas on Friday morning around 8:30 a.m. at Captain Dan’s Crow’s Nest Cenex in Mora. He was located on Friday afternoon safe and unharmed.
