A NY Alert was issued for this Wayne County man on Friday night. Ronald Philippsen was found, safe, overnight

A 75 year old man is back with his family, but not before a scare.

Ronald Philippsen was reported missing, after he was seen leaving the Newark Wegmans on Friday evening.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Department contacted NY Alert, and a statewide advisory for the Missing Vulnerable Adult was issued at 2am Saturday morning, because of concerns about Philippsen's dementia, and that he needed medication.

A few hours later, Wayne County 911 told us that the man had been located, in good condition, and has been reunited with his family.
