In the first call, troopers responded to the area of Kimball Hill Road north in the town of Wesminster at about 5 p.m. for a report that a 74-year-old man with Alzheimer’s had walked away from his home and had not returned. With the assistance of the New Hampshire State Police and the Keene Police Department, the man was found on Route 12 in Westmoreland, N.H.

At about 6:30 p.m., troopers responded to the Hubble Hill Road area of Peru for a report that an elderly man with dementia was missing from his home. He was last seen riding his ATV near his house at 4:30 p.m. State Police, Vermont Fish & Wildlife wardens and members of the Londonderry and Peru Fire & Rescue units responded to the man’s residence and began searching trails in the surrounding area.

The man was found at about 10:20 p.m. about a third of a mile from his home where his ATV had become stuck. The man was in good health and taken home to his wife.
