Baltimore police said Friday that a missing 74-year-old man who suffers from dementia has been found.

Raymond Burke, who is also diagnosed with delusional disorder and schizophrenia, was in good condition after being picked up in Northeast Baltimore on Thursday night, according to Detective Kevin Brown, a police spokesman.

"He was walking in circles," Brown said. "But he's well, and should be fine."

Burke was found about 11:30 p.m. by patrol units in the area of Pulaski Highway and Moravia Park Drive. He was unharmed.

Burke had gone missing Wednesday evening from the Rock Glen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center off North Rock Glen Road in Southwest Baltimore.
