Fremont woman is searching for a man named Tim from Bennington

FREMONT, Neb. (KMTV) — It’s nothing short of a miracle. “If he wouldn't have been there we would have died,” said Fremont native, Deb Larson.

She says she owes her life to a man named Tim. After her car broke down Tuesday night when leaving an appointment with her 73-year-old mother in Omaha. “When I gunned the vehicle, it was stuttering, and I knew this wasn't gonna make it home to Fremont,” she said, “I called triple a and I was on hold forever, probably still would have been on hold today."

She called her friend Glenn to pick them up. “We were at 145th and west maple and by the time he picked us up and we were on our way home at 156th and west maple his car died right there in the intersection,” said Larson.

About 10 minutes later a man pulled up to that intersection and let them warm up in his truck. “Finally, the guy said can I take you home and I said oh honey, we live in Fremont, that's no problem I would be honored, well I couldn't turn him down, our lives were at stake here,” said Larson.

They arrived at Deb's mothers nursing home after 10 p.m. “We got mom into her wheelchair there outside the nursing home there and I turned around because all I knew was his first name, but he was already gone, he was at the end of the parking lot turning to leave,” said Larson.

Deb describes Tim as about 50-years-old. He lives in Bennington with three children and a wife named Lindsey. He also drives a relatively new black F-150.
