Young Shik Han was with his family at Seneca Creek State Park in Montgomery County at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. He left to drive to the nearest restroom but never came back.

Han was found driving north on Cox Road in Huntingtown and may have been driving all night long, said Capt. David Payne of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office.

Huntingtown is approximately an hour and a half away from the park where Han was separated from his family.

Han is believed to be in the initial stages of dementia. Police say he was found unharmed but have not released any more details.
