A 73-year-old Limington, Maine, man who had been missing for more than 14 hours was found Tuesday morning after he walked up to a crew from Portland TV station WMTW.

Robert McDonough approached reporter Norm Karkos shortly after 6:30 a.m. after Karkos delivered a live update. McDonough began speaking with Karkos and identified himself as Robert McDonough. 

The WMTW crew, including videographer Rob Benica and satellite truck operator Keith Kettelhut, immediately notified the Maine Warden Service.

Game wardens spent the night searching for McDonough, who was reported missing around 4 p.m. Monday.

Karkos had been providing live reports from Gammon Road, where McDonough lives,  throughout the morning.

Wardens said McDonough suffers from dementia.

Karkos said McDonough appeared to be in good condition, although he said he did spot some blood on McDonough's hand.
