KIRKLAND — John “Jack” L. Miller of Woodinville, who walked away from the Life Care Center of Kirkland Saturday between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., was located by a Seattle resident in the vicinity of the 500 block of NE 8th Street.

The Seattle resident who had seen an earlier news broadcast regarding the missing gentleman took him into his home and contacted Seattle Police at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

A Kirkland officer also responded to the location where Miller’s identity was confirmed.

He reportedly had made it to Seattle by a combination of walking and riding the bus.

Although somewhat disoriented and confused, he appeared to be unharmed.

He was transported to the hospital by private ambulance for evaluation and to be reunited with his family.

King County Police Search and Rescue assisted Kirkland officers in the search,  providing  over 50 volunteers, several search dogs and volunteers on horseback who searched the Juanita and Totem Lake area for  several hours until the word was received that Miller had been located.
