LOGAN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The search for a missing Logan County man has come to a happy ending.

Bill Booth noticed that Sherman Walsh, 82, his father-in-law, was missing from the home they live in on Tuesday morning.

"The door's open, the dogs are all in, and I went around hollering for him," said Booth. "He was nowhere to be seen. And I said, 'Oh my god, he took off again.'"

Walsh, a Vietnam veteran, was finally found on Thursday afternoon at the Chase Bank in Logan, just a few miles from their home.

Walsh suffers from the early stages of Dementia, and has wandered away from the home before. Booth breathed a sigh of relief when hearing his father-in-law had been found.

"Knowing that he's alright and he's safe. That's basically what I'm concerned about, because he takes medication that needs to be taken every day. He's not since Tuesday. And that's more my concern, his health, than anything."

Deputies checked on Walsh and said he was in good health. He was released on his own. Booth believes Walsh is now staying with his ex-wife.
