After a five-hour search, 43-year-old Martin Pomplin was found. His car was found abandoned on Sunday.

Wilson was on probation, and an apprehension request had been issued for him.
Around 10 officers were a part of the intensive hunt. A search dog keyed in on the tree and found Wilson inside.

He told rescuers he'd been hiding in the tree for about four to eight days without food.

Pomplin is locked up in Rock County Jail on a probation hold.
