A Greenville, Kentucky man who was reported as missing on Thursday was found alive on Friday trapped in his wrecked SUV.

The Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Department took to social media on Thursday night asking for the public's help in locating 29-year-old Robert T. Nantz of Greenville.

The sheriff's department said Nantz never made it home from work. He was last seen leaving his place of employment around 4:45 a.m. on Thursday.

The Ohio County Sheriff's Office tells us they found Nantz in his overturned SUV Friday morning. Investigators believe Nantz's vehicle left the Western Kentucky Parkway, hit part of the Green River Bridge, and became airborne. It then flipped on its side and came to rest at the bottom of an embankment.

Nantz suffered serious, life-threatening injuries and was flown to the University of Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN.

The crash remains under investigation.
