Missing 67-Year-Old Man with Dementia Found


On September 25 Edward Reed, who was visiting from Idaho, wandered off at about 1:20 pm from a residence in the 2100 block of S. Yarrow St.

At approximately 6:00 pm on September 25 a male matching Reed’s description was found in the 3000 block of S Pearl St. A concerned citizen called the Denver Fire Department in regards to this disoriented male. The male was taken to a local hospital and could only identify himself as Ed.

The same citizen who had called about the disoriented male was later watching a local news broadcast and saw this Amber Alert. The citizen then contacted Lakewood PD. Lakewood Police were able to confirm the male from S Pearl St was in fact Edward Reed. Mr. Reed and his family have been reunited.
