10/2 Missing Endangered Family Discovered in Washington County

On Tuesday afternoon at 2:30pm the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received an APB from Carrollton Police Department in Texas regarding three missing endangered persons from their jurisdiction.  The information provided was a 57-year old man was traveling with his eight and seven -year old grandchildren.  The man suffers from memory loss and he left his home with his grandchildren at 2:00pm on Sunday to go to a park that was two blocks away from his residence.  The man and his grandchildren did not return home and he did not take his cell phone with him.  Carrollton Police Department requested agencies check rest stops, motels, and hotels for these missing endangered people. Carrollton Police Department was able to track his locations by monitoring his credit card activity.  The bulletin indicated the man had used an ATM in Skokie, Illinois at approximately 1:30pm.  Just after five, the man approached a deputy from the Washington County Sheriff on Highway 33 in the Town of Addison asking for directions to Dallas, Texas.  The deputy ran the man’s Texas license plate through the Department’s Dispatch Center which quickly advised the deputy of the man’s missing endangered status.  The grandchildren were still with their grandfather and they were fine. The Sheriff’s department worked in conjunction with Carrollton Police Department and Washington County Acute Care Services to place the grandchildren and their grandfather in safe locations until their family arrives to bring them back to Texas.
