Edward Reed, a 67 year old from Idaho, went missing after wandering away from a Lakewood home during a visit.
Police say Reed, who has dementia, was last seen around 1:20 p.m. Wednesday in the 2100 block of South Yarrow Street.
Residents of the Englewood neighborhood near S. Logan St. and E. Dartmoth Ave. say they found him early five hours later wandering in their area. They called an ambulance but didn't realize who he was until seeing his photo online later.
Lakewood police confirmed Reed had been taken to a hospital after being found in that area.
Reed had traveled about eight miles.
