Brought back to Westlake Wednesday night after being found in Canton
William "Sonny" Tichenor, the dementia patient who walked away from a Westlake nursing home early Wednesday morning, has been found safe. Westlake Police announced just after 10 p.m. Wednesday that Tichenor, 82, was found that evening in Canton by local police there. He had apparently taken a cab to Canton. Tichenor was found to be in good health, said Westlake Police Captain Guy Turner. He was taken back to Life Care Center. A Silver Alert was issued Wednesday morning for Tichenor after it was discovered he had left the nursing home sometime after 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Tichenor had spoken in the past of going to Cleveland or New Orleans.
