According to a story in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, a man thought to be a victim of Illinois serial killer John Wayne Gacy was recently found alive in well in Florida more than 34 years after leaving home.

It turns out that Harold Wayne Lovell, who told his relatives he was going to look for a construction job in May 1977, instead made his way to Florida, according to the Sun-Sentinel story. Lovell's nephew found a Florida mugshot when searching online, leading to the family reunion, according to the story.
