(Newser) – A Colorado missing-persons case has wrapped up neatly after a 60-year-old man recognized his photo during a TV announcement. Marvin Allen Fry had wandered out of a hospital and ended up at a homeless shelter for about a week until he saw the announcement about himself and alerted shelter personnel, notes dscriber. Fry showed signs of “severe confusion and disorientation,” shelter personnel told Wheat Ridge city authorities.
