The Cumberland Times News reports that the 82-year-old man who failed to return home after he left his residence on his four-wheeler to cut wood was found dead late Monday night on an old logging road where he had wrecked his vehicle. According to the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office, Marvin Brigman was apparently thrown from his vehicle after he had traveled up a small embankment. The victim was found beneath the overturned vehicle, police said.
The sheriff office received a missing person complaint at 7:20 p.m., Monday in the Eagle Mountain subdivision located off Critton Own Hollow Road near Pin Oak. Police were told that Brigman had left his residence at about 3 p.m., that day, possibly to cut firewood.
The sheriff’s office requested fire and EMS volunteers from Slanesville, Levels and Springfield to begin a search with the assistance of the Maryland State Police medevac helicopter and the sheriff’s office.
Emergency personnel and Brigman’s neighbors began a search before one of the neighbors found Brigman deceased on the logging road at about 11:45 p.m.
The response to the missing person complaint included Hampshire County Graphic Information System (mapping) Coordinator Aaron Cox, county emergency services director Mike Crouse and Hampshire County Medical Examiner Penny Hartman.
