Missing West Linn man located in Salem

An elderly resident of the Rose Linn Care Center who was reported missing Sunday evening was located Wednesday at a Salem-area mission.

Paul A. Waldrep, a 64-year-old resident of the center, apparently walked away from the West Linn facility located at 2330 Debok Road without being noticed.

According to West Linn Police, Waldrep was found in good condition Wednesday in the Salem area. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation, and transport arrangements were pending for his return to West Linn.

West Linn Police officials thanked the community for its assistance in locating Waldrep.

Waldrep has conditions that, if left unmedicated, would make it difficult to function, according to a spokesperson for the care center.

In previous years, he wandered away from a facility in Milwaukie, and was located in Salem.
