|Two juveniles assist WCSO locate missing 89-year-old man|
Two Crawfordville juveniles assisted the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office locate a missing 89-year-old man Sunday, July 14 after the man’s wife contacted law enforcement that her husband had disappeared, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel.
The 70-year-old wife contacted law enforcement and reported that her 89-yerar-old husband disappeared from their home while she was sleeping.
Lt. Sherrell Morrison and Sgt. Ryan Muse discovered the missing man disoriented and leaning up against a railing behind the home. The man told law enforcement that he was at home but could not get inside. Lt. Morrison gave the man a bottle of water and brought him back to a family member for transport to his home and wife where Wakulla EMS checked his welfare.
Lt. Morrison explained to the wife that the man could be fitted for a Project Lifesaver wrist band that would make it easier for law enforcement to track him in the event that he walked away from home in the future.
