Cindi West says the Vashon man who’s been missing since Wednesday (reported widely on Thursday) has “been found alive.” The Vashon/Maury Island Beachcomber has details, reporting 83-year-old Jack Randles was found at a home in the Luana Beach area (map).
4:42 PM UPDATE: From the Voice of Vashon Facebook page, a few more details, ahead:
He is alive and has been reunited with his family. He has a few bumps and scrapes but no apparent serious injuries. He will be checked at a hospital to be sure.
According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, Jack Randles wandered from his home on Wednesday night. He was not found over the next two days despite an intensive foot, car, helicopter and boat search. Saturday afternoon he was finally found.
It was a vigilant citizen who made the difference in this situation. According to one of the managers of the search effort, a woman checking her parents’ home in the Luana Beach area while they were on vacation found some signs someone might be in the house. She called 9-1-1. Deputies entered the house and found Jack in bed sleeping.
