From the news story in the Bergen County Record:
GLEN ROCK — An 86-year-old man missing since 6 p.m. Friday was found Saturday night almost 150 miles away by Connecticut State Police in Andover.
“He was confused and disoriented, but he was in the car,” said Glen Rock Detective Sgt. Eric Reamy. “He was missing for almost 30 hours. Everyone is relieved he’s been found.”
Edmund Ommundsen left his relative’s home in Washington Township driving a 1991 dark blue Honda Accord Wagon on Friday but never arrived at the home he shares with his wife on Prospect Street. His son reported him missing and Ommundsen, who suffers from diabetes, was immediately entered into a national database as a missing person.
