Pawtucket Times - - BLACKSTONE VALLEY - By JOSEPH B. NADEAU jnadeau@woonsock­et­call.com.

CUM­BER­LAND – A sil­ver alert put out Wed­nes­day by the Rhode Is­land State Po­lice for an 80-yearold lo­cal man had a pos­i­tive out­come when he was found early Thurs­day on foot in North At­tle­boro.

Cum­ber­land Po­lice re­ported Ar­nulfo Ledesma, a res­i­dent of Au­tumn Villa se­nior res­i­dence on Di­a­mond Hill Road, was found by North At­tle­boro Po­lice in good con­di­tion at about 12:30 a.m.

State Po­lice had is­sued the sil­ver alert no­ti­fy­ing the public of a miss­ing se­nior at 2 p.m. on Wed­nes­day and a mo­torist driv­ing in At­tle­boro ap­par­ently saw Ledesma walk­ing along a road in that com­mu­nity and re­ported what she ob­served to the po­lice, ac­cord­ing Cum­ber­land po­lice.

Sgt. Lamoureux said Ledesma was “just walk­ing” at the time and was not be­lieved to have been in a mo­tor ve­hi­cle prior to be­ing found. “It was a per­fect out­come, it couldn’t have been any bet­ter,” the Cum­ber­land po­lice sergeant said.

It was not known ex­actly how far Ledesma may have walked dur­ing the time he was away from the Villa but Lamoureux said the lo­ca­tion he was found at was about four to five miles away in North At­tle­boro. Au­tumn Villa is an open cam­pus home where res­i­dents can come and go, Lamoureux noted.
