article imageTelevision crew reporting live on missing man — finds him

By Marcus Hondro     May 30, 2013 in Odd News
A elderly Maine man missing since the previous day returned home as a television crew was doing an on-spot broadcast on the efforts to find him. The 73 year-old man, Robert McDonough, has dementia and had wandered away from his home.
He had left his home Monday afternoon and it wasn't until Tuesday morning he came wandering back up the road in front of his house. Norm Karkos, the reporter for WMTW News 8, was waiting patiently to go on-air live. The camera was recording as the man walked up behind Karkos and past him; not knowing him, Karkos simply said "hello" and returned to waiting for his cue.
Meanwhile, the man apparently told the TV crew who he was. Surprised, and happy about it, they in turn called the Maine Warden Service, who had a search party out for him. They determined that he was okay and after some footage of it all was shot, Mr. McDonough went home to a relieved family.
It is believed the man had spent the night somewhere out of doors.
