Man returns home after being lost for two days

A Beechview man returned home Saturday saying he had spent two days in his car after getting lost near a stone quarry in Collier Township.

On Thursday, Rudolph Golling, 79, drove his white Hyundai Elantra to the military commissary at the U.S. Army's Charles E. Kelly Support Facility in Oakdale. On his way home, Golling apparently made a wrong turn and drove about four miles on a dirt path into the woods. Golling said he slept in his car, honked the car horn for help and ate chocolate pudding. He went to look for help yesterday morning.

Golling, who has health problems, said he was found by a man on an all-terrain vehicle who took him to an office at the Collier Stone Co., 80 Noblestown Road, where he called his wife, Shirley. Collier Township police and paramedics found Golling there at 10:37 a.m. A county dispatcher said Golling and his family refused transport to a hospital.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
