ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. – Authorities were trying to determine how an elderly Rochelle Park man with Alzheimer’s ended up in Glen Rock.

A Broad Street business manager called Glen Rock police just after noon last Thursday, saying that the man “had entered the business and did not know his way home,” Police Chief Dean Ackermann said.

Officers discovered that he’d been reported missing from Rochelle Park -- which is roughly seven miles away.

The man’s wife came to get him, although she and officers were unable to locate his car, Ackermann said.

“It is unknown how he got to Glen Rock or where he left his car,” he said.

Rochelle Park police were investigating, the chief said.
