MANATEE -- An 88-year-old man who had been reported missing from a Sun City senior living facility is OK in a Georgia hospital.
Phil Phelps, who suffers from dementia and whose situation generated a Silver Alert, was driving his 2004 Cadillac Deville in Riverdale, Ga., south of Atlanta on Monday, when he was part of a four-car accident, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office was in charge of the investigation because Phelps was last seen in Manatee County before he was discovered in the hospital in Georgia. Phelps was not at fault in the accident, the report adds.
Phelps had been last seen at 1 p.m. Sunday after he was involved in a minor traffic accident at U.S. 301 and Interstate 75 in Manatee. His car suffered only minor damage and he was seen by Florida Highway Patrol heading north on I-75.
