Re­porter helps po­lice find el­derly fe­male

The Star (Jamaica) - - News The Weekend Star -

Are­porter who helped po­lice catch a rob­bery sus­pect last week fol­lowed up with an­other good deed by find­ing an 89-year-old sub­ur­ban De­troit woman with de­men­tia who had wan­dered away from home in sub-freez­ing tem­per­a­tures.

WWJ re­porter Mike Camp­bell was cov­er­ing Bar­bara Kasler’s dis­ap­pear­ance when he spot­ted her Wed­nes­day morn­ing in her py­ja­mas and slip­pers along a street in Shelby Town­ship.

Camp­bell took Kasler into his ve­hi­cle and cranked up the heat un­til po­lice ar­rived. She was taken to a hos­pi­tal for ob­ser­va­tion.

Camp­bell says he was just “in the right place at the right time”, but po­lice tweeted “We owe you lunch!”

Last week, Camp­bell helped po­lice ap­pre­hend a man sus­pected of loot­ing a fire-dam­aged shop­ping cen­tre in the De­troit sub­urb of War­ren.
