UPDATE: Paul Kitterman walked more than 100 miles to Pueblo before being found safe Tuesday.

DENVER — Police say a man reported missing after halftime of the Broncos game in Denver last week was found safe Tuesday night.

Denver Police said Paul Kitterman, a 53-year-old from Kremmling, was found unharmed in Pueblo. Investigators also said there was no foul play suspected in the case.

Pueblo police say he was found outside of a Kmart store. They say he told them he wanted to get away and find someplace warm. Pueblo police say he was coherent. Paramedics checked him out and then they took him to a hotel.

Tia Bakke, one of Kitterman’s friends, said they were on their way to Pueblo to pick him up late Tuesday night.

Kitterman was attending the game with his 20-year-old son and two family friends.

During halftime, Kitterman’s son used the restroom and returned minutes later, unable to find his father.

“We were looking everywhere in parking lots, trees, bushes, anywhere we could think of,” Jarod Tonneson said Sunday.

Bakke, who gave Kitterman and his stepson, Jarod Tonneson, their tickets to the game and rode with the pair on the two-hour drive from Kremmling, said he was not intoxicated and he had no mental health issues, she said.

On Monday, Denver Police confirmed a witness spotted Kitterman inside the stadium during the third quarter.
