Minnesota man found safe after being missing 5 days in Arizona

The 29-year-old started walking after his car broke down.

A Minnesota man missing for 5 days in Arizona after his car broke down has been found safe.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office had issued an appeal to find 29-year-old Timothy Coen, who went missing in northern Arizona since the evening of May 2.

That night, he told a friend his vehicle had broken down and he was going to walk for some help, along with his dog Harlow.

His GMC Yukon was found on Monday several miles west of Valle, Arizona, prompting the search appeal from local authorities.

On Tuesday, Coen showed up in the town of Williams, around 30 miles south from where he was last seen.

Satellite imagery shows that much of the space in between the two cities is desert.

Speaking to FOX 9's Tim Blotz, the Coconino County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said that he appears to be "OK right now," though further information is expected to be released at a later stage.

The spokesman told Blotz that the terrain can be challenging in northwest Arizona, noting that "it's very easy to get turned around."

It's not clear yet what happened with Coen's dog. BMTN has reached out to the Coconino Sheriff's Office for more information.
