SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. — A 72-year-old man from Nine Mile Falls has been found safe on Friday morning after the Washington State Patrol issued a Silver Alert, his daughter confirmed. 

Dennis Burgi's daughter, Sarah, said in an email that her father went missing at 1 a.m. on Friday. He has dementia, and did not have his glasses, hearing aids, wallet or phone with him, she said. 

Burgi was found barefoot and in pajamas wandering around the parking lot in front of Jeff's Quality Spas on N. Division Street. The owner came out and gave Burgi a pair of shoes before bringing him to the office of James Pittman next-door, Sarah said. 

The women working at the front desk of the office saw the Silver Alert and notified police, according to Sarah. 

"It was amazing kindness shown by Jeff of Jeff’s Quality Spas and well as the alertness and care of the ladies at the doctor’s office," she wrote.
