Missing Elderly Man Located

A 93-year-old Omaha man suffering from dementia was located Thursday night after a brief scare when he went missing.

Able 1, the Omaha Police helicopter, helped locate him and provided the attached video.

He was found in a snowbank near 97th and Ohio.

He had reportedly told his wife that he was going to the bank around 2:30 Thursday afternoon. She called police when he didn’t come back.

The helicopter crew coordinated with OPD officers on the ground to locate him in the snowbank. He told them he had fallen.

He was lucid, checked out and he’s fine.
