New York man vacationing in Center Harbor becomes disoriented on walk

CENTER HARBOR — A 79-year-old man with Alzheimer's walked about three miles from his vacation home Tuesday afternoon while area police and members of the N.H. Department of Fish and Game searched for him.
The New York man was reported missing by his wife at 4:55 p.m. who said she had taken a nap and he had gone out to walk the dog but hadn't returned yet. He had been gone about an hour before search crews were called.
The couple was staying in a cabin on Sturtevant Beach Road and the man was unfamiliar with the area.
At 6:30 p.m. a resident of Mead Farm Road called to report an elderly man was at her home that he didn't know his name and seemed disoriented. Search crews confirmed it was the lost man.
He was checked out by medical crews and returned to his cabin.
