The Ajman Police ensured the reunion of an elderly Arab man, who had gone missing from the Al Nuaimiya neighbourhood in Ajman, with his family members.

Lieutenant-Colonel Yahya Khalaf Al-Matroushi, the Director of Al-Nuaimiya Police Station, said that a police patrol found an elderly Arab man, who had gone missing. He was brought to the police station and provided food and shelter while the personnel looked for his family members.

Soon, his family members were identified and he was reunited with them.

The family appreciated the good turn of the Ajman Police.

Lieutenant-Colonel Al-Matroushi urged the public to take care of senior citizens and ensure their safety and security.

One of the sons of the Arab man said his father had lost his concentration because of his advanced age. He is in his 80s and he went missing when he stepped out of his home to drive away his boredom, but lost his way.

“We thought that he was sleeping in his room. However, he had left home without anyone's knowledge,” the son added.
