BAYOU L’OURSE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland
Falcon reports that 67-year-old Wilfred Davis who was reported missing by
family members on January 4th, was found safe around noon, Saturday
by a deputy near Bayou L’Ourse, LA.
Davis, of Baton Rouge, left his home in route to see a
friend on Airline Highway but never made it there. That was on January 3rd.
Family members alerted law-enforcement authorities
when it was apparent something was amiss.
A K-9 patrol unit stopped to check a pick-up truck
which was parked on the eastbound shoulder of US 90 near the Assumption
/Terrebonne Parish Line. When the deputy
conducted a check of the truck’s license plate, he determined that the vehicle
was reported missing and the vehicle had been occupied by Davis.
The deputy found Davis slumped over the steering wheel
and he was incoherent. The deputy sought
medical attention for Davis and after being checked out by Acadian Ambulance EMT’s
and cleared, Davis was transported to the Sheriff’s Office where he was fed a
hot meal and hydrated.
Davis, who suffers from dementia, had become lost and
ran out of gas. Family was notified and
traveled to the Parish to tend to their loved one.
