Elderly man, juvenile found safe after reported missing

by John A. Winters

An elderly man and a juvenile reported missing in separate cases in Newnan and Coweta County Tuesday were found unharmed within hours.

At one point the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office’s helicopter was used to help in the searches, which included personnel from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, Coweta County Fire Department and Newnan Police and Fire departments.

The search for the elderly man, who suffered from early dementia, started just before 10 a.m. when his caretaker noticed he was missing from his White Oak Drive residence, according to Investigator Jae Robertson with the sheriff’s office.

The man was later found in the yard of a residence on Highland Drive about two hours later.

Officials also searched for a missing juvenile boy who authorities said was found later. Several patrol cars were seen at the Ashley Park shopping area, but additional information was not available Tuesday.
