Jim Hawthorne is safe and sound.

LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette tweeted Sunday afternoon that Hawthorne has been “rescued” and is now “safe.”  The former play-by-play man, who retired from LSU in March, was feared missing after previous attempts to contact him were unsuccessful.

Amidst massive flooding in and around Baton Rouge, the former “Voice of the Tigers” was feared missing after relatives were unable to locate him after his home took on water Saturday night. LSU asked local media members to help locate Hawthorne after he and his wife Carol chose to remain in their home in the Park Forest subdivision.
