MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) - A missing and endangered man from the Milwaukee area was found driving around lost in the Merrill area. Lincoln County deputies received a call from two good samaritans Friday night, reporting they followed a vehicle when they noticed how poorly the man was driving. The man stopped, and asked for directions back to Milwaukee. The helpers instead called law enforcement.
Deputies found the 71-year-old man was very confused, and was listed as missing and endangered by the Greenfield Police Department.
The man’s family was contacted, and they came from the Milwaukee area to Merrill to take him home.
