Reed suffers from Alzheimer's Disease and has previously had a stroke. Police were worried he might be confused about his name.
According to authorities, he likely doesn't know his address, phone number, or how to get home and had no wallet or cell phone.
Well, worry no more -- Reed's alive, and is said to be OK. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
