Missing Bridgeville Man Found Dead

Laurie "Larry" McDonald, the Bridgeville man who went missing Thursday night, has been found dead in Edgewood.

The missing Bridgeville man who vanished Thursday night has been found dead in Edgewood, according to authorities.

The body of Laurie “Larry” McDonald, 81, was found in a wooded area not far from the Parkway East, Bridgeville police Chief Chad King said.

WPXI-TV reported McDonald’s body was found around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

King said McDonald left for a doctor’s appointment in Homewood on Thursday and apparently got lost on his way home. He somehow ended up on an access road, King said, and either crashed his car or got stuck in the mud.

McDonald then called his wife around 9 p.m. Thursday to say he saw a gas station and planned to walk through a wooded area to get assistance. Wilkinsburg police found the car around 9:30 p.m. and had it towed.

McDonald’s wife contacted Bridgeville police around 3 a.m. Friday to report that he was missing. Police spent most of Friday searching for him with K9 units.
