Endangered man reunited with family

Posted:
LINCOLN COUNTY (WAOW) -

Lincoln County officials say a Milwaukee area man was reunited with his family. They say two Merrill residents reported following a car near Highway 51, noting how poorly the man was driving.

The two said the man asked for directions to get back to Milwaukee and that's when they called the sheriff's department.

Officers say when they ran a check on the 71-year-old man, they found he was listed as missing and endangered.

A deputy with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department found the man confused and brought him in, where his family arrived a few hours later to take the man home.
