HILLSBORO, Ohio - Police in the small southwest Ohio city of Hillsboro have returned an 82-year-old man to his home 280 miles (450 kilometres) away after he apparently got lost while driving in his Indiana hometown.
The Hillsboro Times-Gazette reports that auto shop employees called police Wednesday to say a man was sitting in his pickup truck, apparently confused. Police talked to Earl Lutterman and learned he got lost while driving in Evansville, Indiana.
Officer Shawn Kelley drove Lutterman home in his cruiser. Kelley left the man with his brother Norman Lutterman, who was very thankful that police returned him.
Norman Lutterman said learning that his brother drove so far away was a shock. Earl Lutterman no longer had a driver's license, and his license plate was expired.
