KelliFriday, August 9, 3013 —Cook County Sheriff’s Police located a missing at-risk man alive in a wooded area near Merrionette Park, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

Approximately 4:25 p.m. on Thursday, Sheriff’s Police received a report of a suspicious vehicle near the 3400 block of West 119th Street.
