Body cam footage was released of the manhunt for a trespasser on Disney World's Discovery Island on Bay Lake, which gives us an behind-the-scenes look at the abandoned island. 

According to the Daily Mail, 42-year-old Alabama man Richard McGuire camped out on the island and documented his stay on YouTube. He was caught on security footage wandering the island on April 30, and that's when cops took action to search for him. 

Body cam footage of the search can be viewed in the video below

Discovery Island, which is on Bay Lake, has been closed to the public since 1999. Back in the day, it was home to animal exhibits and walking trails. Now all that remains are decaying buildings, rusty cages, and overgrown foliage.
