An off-duty Rogers County captain found a Wisconsin man that had been reported missing in Oklahoma.
On Thursday, the 80-year old man had been reported to be driving a Ford Taurus with a Wisconsin tag and last seen at a gas station on the Will Rogers Turnpike.
Captain Adam Hull was driving home when he saw a car matching that description and called it in and then made contact with the man. Rogers County Officials say the man was sleeping along Route 66 outside of Foyil.
They say he told them he thought he was parked in front of his Wisconsin home. The man had been driving from Wisconsin to Allen, Texas to visit his daughter. He was taken to the Sheriff’s Office and checked out by EMS.
He stayed at the Sheriff’s Office until his family picked him up on Friday morning.
Sheriff Walton offered a special thank you to Adam Hull for displaying that an officer is never off duty and the motto “Protect and Serve” is alive and well with this team.
