Missing Person 

Buffalo Police Officers, Joshua Domros and Michael Mariato of Central District assisted on a Missing Person call at an address on Erie St. on Monday night for a 71 year old male who had Alzheimer’s. The male was missing for about 2 hours until police came across an elderly male on the corner of E. Eagle St. and Washington St, who matched the description of the missing male. Upon further investigation, police did discover that it was the man that had been missing. The male was safe and sound, and picked up by his wife. Thank you to these two very active officers who kept up the search until they found the gentleman and returned him to his family.
