A USAF spokesman said there was no indication that Parrott's presence in Brandon posed a threat or placed anyone in danger.
“Parrott is believed to be on foot and without ready access to means of subsistence which may force him to look for alternate means of food, clothing and shelter and to possibly seek assistance, including transportation. Citizens and businesses throughout the town centre were made aware of the sighting,”
