Minnesota man, dog found safe after he was missing for several days in northern Arizona

A Minnesota man was found after he had been missing for about five days in northern Arizona, according to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

On Tuesday, authorities found Timothy Coen in the Town of Williams, which was about 25 to 30 miles away from where he was last known to have been.

“We have people going to see him right now and check his condition, but everything right now looks to be positive," said Jon Paxton of the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

Coen, who was traveling with his dog Harlow, was not found with his dog. However, Coen gave authorities directions to where he tied up the dog. The deputies found Harlow and rescued him as well.

Monday, authorities found Cohen's Coen's 2004 GMC Yukon with Minnesota license plates was found a few miles west of Highway 64 near Valle, Arizona. Valle is about 50 miles northwest of Flagstaff.

Authorities say around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, Coen told a friend that his vehicle stopped working and that he was going to walk for help. Since then, no one had heard from Coen. There was concern as temperatures had dropped below freezing over the weekend.

“It’s very easy to get turned around," said Paxton. "If you can find some good landmarks to guide yourself by, it’s possible you could be going around in circles for days.”
