DOTHAN: Dothan Police received a call from ON STAR of the whereabouts of a vehicle of a missing person. The missing person is 69 years old.
The person did not return home when they were suppose to. They suffer from a medical condition which affects your memory. ON STAR was able to give Dothan Police a step by step path of the vehicle. The vehicle became stationary at Circle West Shopping Center and police located the vehicle.
While they vehicle was unoccupied Police had description and what the person was last seen wearing. The 69 year old was located in Play It Again Sports. Police checked the man out just to make sure he was medically okay.
It was neat listening to the call as ON STAR gave step by step points of the vehicle as it travled and police were able to locate the vehicle. ON STAR played very vaulable to giving the family peace of mind in located their loved one and making sure they are. Police reported the subkect was okay.
Over the years we have heard calls dispatched where the accident was reported by ON STAR. One that we remember was Highway 231 North and John D. Odom Road. ON STAR reported to Dothan Communications a side impact crash at that location and emergency units rolled.
Today this was a successful call and all was ok.
Not trying to sell vehicle with ON STAR. Just a real life call and reported as it was dispatched and the police units rolled and located.
