**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:53pmHe's 12 miles south of the start and 5 miles east of the start.

This makes a right angle triangle. You can find the closest distance by finding the hypotenuse of this triangle by using the Pythagorean Theorem.

12^2 + 5^2 = h^2

144 + 25 = h^2

169 = h^2

13 = h
