Missing man found safe... during news report about himself

Watch the dawning realisation on the reporter’s face.

A MAN WHO went missing in the US was found safe and well… by a local news team recording an item about his disappearance.

WMTW reporter Norm Karkos and a cameraman were preparing to record a segment about the search for Robert McDonough, 73, when it was interrupted by an old man walking past in the background.

After patiently waiting for him to exit the shot, the news crew in Limington, Maine realised what had happened.

A happy outcome for everyone – and best of all, Karkos’s entire thought process was clearly visible on his face:


The WMTW team then summoned rescuers to identify McDonough, who suffers from dementia and had been missing for around 14 hours.
