MEDFORD, Ore. — A Medford senior who went missing on Monday has been found, according the Medford Police Department (MPD).

76-year-old Harold Poage was last seen on Monday around 2:40 p.m., leaving the Providence Plaza on McAndrews. MPD publicized his disappearance on Tuesday morning, saying that Poage suffered from dementia and was not very mobile.

"He is either right in that area, or got a ride from someone," MPD said in a Facebook post.

The police urged residents and business owners near the Providence campus on McAndrews to keep an eye out for Poage. They described him as wearing a black jacket, dark-colored pants and a baseball cap or beanie, standing 5'8" tall and 165 lbs, walking with the assistance of a cane.

On Wednesday, MPD announced that a citizen had found Poage "in some bushes at the old bank building" at Crater Lake Avenue and Stevens Street.

Poage was transported to the hospital, and authorities hope that he will make a full recovery.
