Report says missing elderly Alzheimer's patient found near Center Sandwich home
David Healy was found around 1 a.m. by a K-9 unit from New England Canine, some 400-500 feet in woods behind his house, according to a statement posted shortly after 1:30 a.m. on the Facebook page.
"It appears that Mr. Healy was on his way out of the woods after having taken an extremely long walk which had taken him through a swamp," the post said.
The post added that Healy was sent to an unnanmed hospital, and did not say if he was injured or not. The Sandwich Fire Department, NH Fish and Game Department, Carroll County Sheriff's Office, Moultonborough Police Department, New England Canine, and the Upper Valley Search and Rescue assisted in the search, according to the post.
According to an earlier report, Healy's wife said she last saw him Thursday night at 9 p.m., Police Chief Douglas Wyman said. Wyman said Healy may have been home on Friday morning, but that Healy's wife returned home around 1 p.m. Friday to find him gone. A missing person poster provided by the police department listed 9 a.m. Friday as the last time he was seen.
