The Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office and a local family breathe a sigh of relief this morning after their missing elderly relative is found safe in the city of Fredericksburg. Ben Davis Hoff apparently stayed in a hotel room and was trying to get to the bus station Sunday night and found it closed. An area resident saw and recognized him from a local news story and photo and called police.
He is here visiting from California and apparently wandered away from the 6400 block of their Old Plank Road home around 1:00 Sunday afternoon. Hoff suffers from Alzheimers, which added to their concern. He has now been reunited with his loved ones.
