Endangered man with Alzheimer’s found safe, police say
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - An 87-year-old man with Alzheimer’s missing since Saturday was found safe Wednesday morning, Cincinnati police announced.
Police say Henry Parker was found underneath a tree by his granddaughters near the 1900 block of Fairfax Avenue.
Parker was later taken to Christ Hospital for evaluation, according to Lt. Jonathan Cunningham.
Parker had been missing for four days after he walked away from his home on Cleinview Avenue, Cincinnati police said.
“Whenever we know that we have an endangered, elderly individual, it’s important that we bring that person back to their loving family, and knowing, which is more concerning, is that Mr. Parker has a known history of dementia, he may not even know what his name is, or where he currently resides,” explained Cunningham.
Parker has remained stable since being found, police added.
