Michael Naylon, the Newtown man who has been missing for more than a week, was spotted Friday at Tyler State Park, his family said.
His daughter Megan told Patch someone saw him at around 7 p.m. near the park's boathouse area. His family has organized another search party today and are seeking volunteers to help. If you are interested in volunteering, meet at the park at 10 a.m.
According to his family, Naylon, 65, may be disoriented due to a stroke.
Naylon's family last saw him Friday, Sept. 28, when he left the house and walked down Route 413 towards Newtown from Worthington Mill Road. He was wearing a black t-shirt and jeans at the time he left.
Megan said she believes her father had a stroke while walking on Route 413 and it caused him to become disoriented. He has had four strokes in the past, she said, and two of those strokes caused him to become confused and disoriented. The other two times he made it to the hospital in time.
“He had a stroke before and walked from Penndel to Bristol,” she said, adding he followed familiar landmarks he recognized from growing up in that area.
He is 5 feet, 9 inches, about 170 pounds, he daughter said. He has grey hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his arms and left shoulder blade.
If you see Naylon, call the police or Megan at 215-954-9176.
