O'HARE — A 69-year-old man who went missing after he flew from London to O'Hare has been found in good condition, police said Friday.
Thomas Richardson was found staying in a motel near O'Hare Airport, said Officer Daniel O'Brien, a police spokesman. He refused medical attention, and returned to the airport Thursday night to wait for a family member to pick him up.
Richardson, who had suffered episodes of fainting and memory lapses in the past, appeared to be in good health, O'Brien said.
Police issued a missing person alert for Richardson Oct. 11 after he flew into O'Hare from London but failed to board a connecting flight to California and did not contact his family.
The police report made no mention of why Richardson failed to get on the flight to California, O'Brien said.
