An 81-year-old Parkville man who lived at Oak Crest Senior Living Community was found dead in a nearby ravine Thursday morning, Baltimore County police said, hours after family members reported him missing from the facility, where he lived as an independent resident.
David Albert Reeves went missing at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to a tweet sent by police Wednesday. Officers responded to the senior community about 6:44 p.m. after a campus-wide sweep conducted by on-site security personnel, which included a door-to-door ground search, security camera review and aviation search from above, police said in a statement.
Police and Oak Crest staff continued to search for Reeves until he was located in a “densely wooden area” near the end of Woodcove Court just before 9 a.m. Thursday.
Clarification: A previous version of this story did not specify the part of Oak Crest where Reeves lived.
