73-year-old reported missing from Westminster found safe after taking bus to mountains

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — A 73-year-old man who was reported missing on Saturday was found safe on Sunday, the Westminster Police Department said.

Police said Alberto Hernandez left his home at 5 a.m. Saturday and told his wife he was heading to Walmart but didn’t say which one.

Police said he normally walks to the store from his home.

He usually makes it back home by 8 a.m. when he walks to Walmart. But after he did not return by Saturday night and his wife had not heard from him, he was reported missing.

Hernandez told police on Sunday that after he went to Walmart, he took a bus ride to the mountains where he missed the last bus home and stayed the night.
