Little Rock Jock Asleep In Attic As Police Search

UPDATE 12/10/2012:  DC, whose real name is Willard Eugene Moran III posted this message today on the Alice website:

"To my family, my friends and fans of Alice 107.7. After the events of last Friday, I have decided to seek treatment for certain personal and medical issues that I have been dealing with for some time.

While I regret being away from the show during this time, I look forward to getting back to work in the near future.

I appreciate your support during this difficult time. Much Love, DC."

"DC McGehee" has been found safe with a bizarre ending to the search for him.

KATV reports around 7:30 Friday night, the Lonoke County Sheriff's Office told Channel 7 News he walked out of his house saying he had been asleep in his attic. Even more bizarre, several searchers went to the attic during the day but didn't see him.

Around noon on Saturday, Lt. Jim Kulesa with the sheriff's office said DC had been in a safe room inside the attic and the door was locked. His family apparently also searched for him and didn't realize he was in that inner room, either.

"DC," whose real name is Willard Moran, didn't show up to work Friday morning at Cumulus owned KLAL Alice 107.7 FM. Family reported him missing around 10:30 am. Deputies and state troopers spent the day searching for him via air, on ground and even called in a dive team to help.

Channel 7 News had a crew on the scene when DC walked out of his home in the 3700 block of Kerr Station Road. He was seen on KATV video being handcuffed and taken into custody however Lt. Kulesa says he was never formally arrested or charged.
