New York State Park Police have found Dr. Jerome Nadler, 76, of Setauket, a fisherman who went missing on Labor Day at Caleb Smith State Park Preserve.
According to Park Police Sgt. Daniel Lammers, Nadler was found Thursday as a result of the continuing search and brought to Stony Brook University Hospital for evaluation.
Lammers said the extent of the injuries suffered by Nadler are currently unknown.
Patch reported that Nadler was last seen by state park police who allowed him to drive down a paved path at the park on Monday in order to go fly-fishing.
