A resident who went missing from Charis Place Assisted Living in Kenai on Saturday was found within the hour.
Kenai Police Chief Gus Sandahl said the department’s dispatchers got the call that a resident was missing from the facility at 5:40 p.m. on Saturday. The woman, whose name Sandahl said the police will not release, was found just a few blocks away from Charis Place less than an hour after that call came in. Sandahl said he did not know the woman’s age.
“Dispatch was able to get a hold of her via her cellphone,” Sandahl said. “Essentially it was a missing person report.”
A police log of the incident showed the woman had fallen down and couldn’t be seen from the roadway, Sandahl said. No injuries were noted in the report, he said.
“The Kenai Fire Department transported her back to the residence,” Sandahl said.
Charis Place did not return a call for comment by press time on Monday.
