An 89-year old World War II veteran who was reported missing from a nursing home in England has been found in Normandy after traveling to attend D-Day commemorations, police said Friday.
Bernard Jordan was last seen at The Pines home in Hove, southern England, on Thursday morning. Staff called police when he did not return that evening.
Sussex Police said Friday that another veteran later called to say he and Jordan were at a hotel in Ouistreham, France. Officers also spoke to Jordan and determined he was fine.
The force said Jordan left the home wearing his service medals and joined a group of veterans heading to France by bus.
There really is nothing better than a cantankerous old guy who just doesn’t give a shit what you think or care about your rules. Reminds me of this Patton Oswalt skit.
