Frank Liberto, father of St. Petersburg Times reporter Jennifer Liberto, is alive and well and made contact with his family Thursday morning.

Jennifer Liberto wrote a story about her missing father, who stayed in their New Orleans home during Hurricane Katrina, in Thursday's Times.

Frank Liberto, it turns out, was rescued by boat from the second floor of the family home in the flooded Lakeview neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon. He was transferred overnight to the Houston Astrodome.
