A former elementary school principal in the Penfield School District has been found alive after he was lost for days in the Florida Everglades.
Mark Miele -- who now lives in Virginia -- was found Monday -- roughly five days after he was due back from a kayaking trip that began January 22.
He was dehydrated but said to be in stable condition.
A bag containing his phone washed up Sunday, and data on the phone helped deputies find him.
He was found floating in the water, wearing a life vest.
