Ohio man stopped in Michigan by Troopers reunited with family

(SANILAC COUNTY) -- State Police Troopers from the Caro Post say that an 80-year-old man from Fort Wayne, Indiana who was stopped late Friday night along M-25 just south of Port Sanilac has been safely returned to family members. Troopers say they pulled over the man for speed and improper lane use and while questioning him learned that he was unsure of his whereabouts. He said that he was coming from Ohio and heading to Fort Wayne and was quite surprised to learn that he was in Michigan. He told police that he did not have dementia, but was diabetic and was overdue for his medication. Police ran the man's license information through LEIN and found that a missing and endangered persons report had been issued for the man from Fort Wayne. Family members told troopers that he had left home at 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon and they had not spoken to him since. He was transported to McKenzie Health System for evaluation and family members picked him up the following morning. Family members say the man had just celebrated his 80th birthday the previous day.
