WSB-TV reports that a police officer guided the cowboy toward a less-traveled city street. The station reports that Mishler is trying to reach Indiana by June for his sister's birthday.
WAGA-TV reports that Mishler is on a mission to fight childhood hunger and hopes to eventually make it to Washington, D.C. When that station's news crew caught up with him, he sang a cowboy song.
The Wisconsin State Journal has reported that Mishler has a doctorate in philosophy and has worked as a bail bondsman and a horse trainer.
