Feds: Missing Pilot Alive In Fla. After Wrist Cut

Posted: Updated:

QUINCY, Fla. (AP) - Federal authorities say the pilot at the center of a plane crash mystery has been found alive in northern Florida after he apparently slit one of his wrists.

U.S. Marshals spokesman Michael Richards says 38-year-old Marcus Schrenker was apprehended around 10 p.m. EST Tuesday in a tent at a campground in Quincy.

Richards says one of Schrenker's wrists was cut, but he's alive and in custody.

Authorities believe Schrenker let his plane crash in the Florida panhandle and apparently parachuted to safety.

Before the crash, Schrenker's life was spiraling downward: His wife filed for divorce, and his financial management companies were under investigation.
