Man reported missing found safe


WILTON — A man reported missing Sunday night by his wife was found safe by Wilton Police on Monday morning.

John “Jack” Roth, 70, left his Main Street home Sunday following an argument, said Wilton officer Nicholas Oettinger. His wife called police at about 7 p.m. to report him missing.

He left the house to go cool down, Oettinger said.

When a report of a missing person comes in, procedures, including alerting the media, are started at that time, said Police Chief Dennis Brown. 

Roth apparently drove back to his home Monday morning then left and Oettinger tracked him down, he said.
