Tuesday afternoon, Wallaae Birdwell, who has mild dementia, was following his daughter in a separate vehicle in Bend when she lost sight of him.

 

Wednesday morning, brokers at High Lakes Realty in LaPine -- found Birdwell when he walked into the office, looking for a place to rent.

 

Mark Miller talked with him.

 

"And when we were walking out the door, one of the brokers went to the internet and said she remembered seeing that van in connection about him missing.  We called local authorities and they showed up."

 

Birdwell had been living with his daughter in Remdond, after being evicted from his home in Christmas Valley.
