On Sunday May 17, 2009 family members of a critically missing person came to the United States Park Police Central District Station seeking assistance in locating their missing relative.
These two stated that their relative had been reported missing to the Washington DC Metropolitan Police on May 8, 2009, that he had not been heard from since, and that he had significant health issues that could preclude him from seeking assistance. Further, the missing man also suffered from diabetes, which without routine medication could cause significant illness.
The family members felt that since their relative had ties to the Downtown area, specifically East Potomac Park, that he may be in this area.
United States Park Police Officer Antolik commenced a diligent search of areas that the missing man might be in. After about an hour of searching, Officer Antolik located the man.
The missing man was treated by DC Fire Department EMS Personnel and transported to George Washington University Hospital. He appeared to be healthy and is expected to recover well.
