The search for a Portland man who suffers from dementia, who went missing Saturday, was called off when he was found Sunday morning in the Riverside area of Portland.

Charles Harlow, 71, a former Democratic state representative, Portland mayor and city councilor, was reported missing by his family at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

A search involving the Portland Police and Fire departments and the Maine Warden Service was launched in the Riverside Industrial Park area, said Portland Police Lt. Bob Doherty.

He said Harlow was found Sunday at about 6:30 a.m. unharmed inside a bakery in the industrial park.

“Knowing he is home and is fine makes us all feel good,” said Doherty.
