5/8 Missing Confused Michigan Man Safely Returned

Too many times you hear a story of a person who has gone missing and either doesn’t turn up or is found dead. Authorities at the Washington County Sheriff’s Department are pleased to report that early Wednesday morning they located a Michigan man reported missing by his wife. According to the report information provided by Lieutenant Martin Schulteiss, the deputy was traveling on Highway 28 when he observed a car traveling at approximately 35 mph. The car was stopped and the driver was identified as a 68 year old man from Cooperville Michigan. The man appeared to be confused and said that he was on his way home and should be back there in ten minutes. He said he was out looking for his dog and then taking the dog for a drive. He thought he was in Michigan by Grand Rapids near his house. An inquiry into the system revealed the man was entered as a missing person from Michigan. Deputies made phone contact with his wife who said that her husband left around five pm to look for the dog and never came back. She said in the last week he has been complaining of headaches and is seeing things. He has sought medical treatment and nothing has been found to this point.  The wife advised deputies that their children will be picking up their father at St. Joseph’s hospital where he was admitted.  His vehicle was towed for storage and his dog was transported to the Humane Society for safe shelter.
