William Hatcher, the Meridian missionary who was working in Haiti at the time an earthquake struck Tuesday, was still in the Dominican Republic Friday.
His son, Greg Hatcher, says he has talked with his father several times since learning he was alive and well Thursday.
Hatcher is expected to return home sometime Saturday.
Greg said his father is still waiting on travel arrangements to be issued through the American embassy. He said the elder Hatcher is very concerned about the people of Haiti and how he can help them.
