Garner went missing Tuesday, January 28, around 7 p.m. after helping stranded drivers on Highway 31 in the storm.

The Vestavia Hills man was found the next morning in a ravine near the Vestavia Hills Public Library. The neighbors who found him had formed their own search party to find their friend and the father of two. There was concern about his welfare because of his diabetes.

Garner was transported to St. Vincent's Hospital then UAB with a broken back and internal bleeding. He remains in serious condition.
