Missing Michigan man found in BG


A man reported missing from Michigan was stopped in his vehicle downtown.

On Saturday around 11:40 p.m., Bowling Green police dispatch advised of a reckless operating vehicle that was eastbound on West Wooster Street heading toward the police station.

Within minutes, the SUV with Michigan plates passed the station; an officer pulled behind and activated the cruiser’s overhead lights.

The Honda stopped quickly and abnormally in the roadway prior to the officer activating his overhead lights. The driver was an elderly man who had trouble answering some basic questions of where he was.

It was quickly determined the man was not under the influence of alcohol but was having some dementia-related issue, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

After running the Michigan driver`s license, dispatch advised that the driver was entered as a missing/endangered adult out of the Napoleon Township Police Department in the Jackson, Michigan area. He was entered as missing after he did not arrive at his destination in Michigan on Friday.

The man was taken into the police station while his vehicle was parked. Arrangements were made to meet in Blissfield, Michigan to transfer the man back into his home territory, according to the report.
