The Lake Forest Park police have a service to help reunite disoriented and lost individuals with their loved ones.

Last week a resident of Lake Forest Park found an elderly person wandering around their neighborhood unable to remember his name, address or where he had come from. The good neighbor brought the wanderer to the police who were able to reunite him with his loved ones quickly because he was on a list of people who have memory problems.

Last month, an elderly woman was found wandering in Third Place Books by a staff member. Police were able to identify her quickly and call her husband to pick her up.

Getting someone in the system is easy. If you have someone in your home who could become confused or disoriented, come to the police department on the second floor of City Hall and fill out a form which identifies the person. Bring a current photo to attach to the file. The paper file is available to the police to identify the disoriented person and reunite them with their family members.
