A local television news crew reporting on a missing Maine man found him as they were about to shoot a live update near his home.

Robert McDonough, a 73-year-old who suffers from dementia, had been missing for more than 14 hours when he walked past the WMTW News 8 crew :huh: camped out on the side of his road in rural Limington.

News 8 reporter Norm Karkos was preparing to deliver a live report on "News 8 This Morning" early Tuesday when McDonough walked into the frame. Karkos did not immediately recognize McDonough, who then identified himself to the stunned TV crew. They notified the Maine Warden Service, which had been searching for McDonough since late Monday afternoon.

The game wardens said they were just about to ramp up their search for McDonough when he returned home.

The man appeared to be in good condition, although Karkos said he spotted "some blood on McDonough's hand."

Sadly, he probably had no idea what he was doing.

They were outside his house. Not as huge a coincidence as if they were some random place in the street.

The health care system should have taken care of him.
