Update: Woodinville Area Man with Dementia Found Safe

Rescue crews searched for a 52-year-old Woodinville-area man with dementia Wednesday morning and found him after about a two-hour search.

Update 11:30 p.m. Feb. 27: The missing male has been located safe and sound, according to a post on the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. Aid is on scene, but he (the man) should be returning home soon, the post said.

Original post--

Rescue crews are reportedly searching for a 52-year-old Woodinville-area man with dementia. He was reported missing from a group home.

Residents have emailed Patch to say they've seen a Sheriff's helicopter patrolling. Woodinville Police Chief Sydney Jackson told Patch this morning that crews have been searching for the man since about 8:45 a.m. 

One resident emailed and said, "the man reportedly left a group home just over the King/Snohomish County line this morning wearing only a T-shirt and unfortunately not even wearing pants."  Patch is working to confirm this and will update as soon as more information becomes available.

If anyone sees him, please call 911.
