A man missing since Saturday was found by a local search group in a manhole in League City.

On Sunday at approximately 6pm, the League City Police Department says it received a missing person call. Kevin Gonterman, 25, left his residence on Saturday at approximately 4:30pm and had not returned.

League City detectives say they received a call Monday from Gonterman's mother who advised she had contacted Texas Equusearch and that they were checking a wooded area next to his residence. While detectives were following up with associates of Gonterman and locating his place of business, Equusearch located him in a manhole in the 2600 block of E. FM 518 in a wooded field.

Authorities responded and retrieved Gonterman from the manhole. He was transported by EMS to Memorial Hermann Hospital for treatment.
