KANSAS CITY, Missouri – A local man was found on the evening of Wednesday, March 15 after going missing in the morning near the area of 8th and Park.

Police issued a ‘missing endangered elderly’ alert for Marty P. Murphy, 64, just after 11:00 a.m. on March 15. Murphy is roughly 5’9″ and 140 pounds.

“He was last seen wearing a jean jacket, a light shirt with a collar and blue jeans,” said Sgt. Kari Thompson of the KCPD media unit on Wednesday afternoon. “We just need help finding him.”

Just after 6:00 p.m. that evening, KCPD issued a statement indicating that Murphy had been located safely. Murphy had walked into a business in the 1600 block of Spruce and told patrons he was in need of medical attention. The woman he spoke with brought him to East Patrol, and he was subsequently transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
