SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Michigan (AP) — A reporter 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 last Wednesday morning in her pajamas 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 said he was just “in the right place at the right time”, but police tweeted that “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.
