‘Missing Endangered Person Advisory’ Canceled
SKIPPACK PA – An elderly Upper Frederick man who was the subject of a Pennsylvania State Police “missing endangered persons advisory” issued this week from the troopers’ Skippack barracks has been successfully found, and the advisory canceled, they said.
Troopers reported finding William Trumbore, 87, of Big Road, Upper Frederick, on Wednesday evening (Jan. 18, 2017) after 6 p.m., after he was said to be missing about 24 hours earlier.
No other details of about the closure of the missing persons alert were offered, including the state of Trumbore’s health, if he was returned home or elsewhere, or where he was located. State police earlier had said they feared he may have been “confused.”
The story of Trumbore’s disappearance prompted many readers, including those of The Schwenksville Post, to share it more than 1,100 times across social media outlets. Several people called troopers to offer information they hoped would be of help.
