A TV news reporter in Maine was in between live shots on a story about a missing elderly man when the missing elderly man in question casually sauntered up to him. Right place, right time.
The man, 73-year-old Robert McDonough, who suffers from dementia, had been missing for more than 14 hours.
Here’s the moment McDonough approached the news crew:
WMTW News 8 anchor/reporter Norm Karkos was able to call the warden, who was able reunite McDonough with his family.
McDonough appeared to be in good condition, although there was some blood on McDonough’s hand. A happy ending to a scary story.
The story is unique in many ways, although a similar situation happened in Fresno, California, in 2011. Uncanny.Mediaite]
