MICHAEL HAERTLE HAS BEEN FOUND SAFE. HE’S OKAY.
The family of Brian Haertle is frantically trying to determine the whereabouts of Mr. Haertle. They say he walked away from a medical facility this afternoon at around 1pm. He was last seen down near Bay Boulevard on the Bayfront in Newport. He was wearing a blue hospital gown-type clothing. They say police have been looking for him but Haertle apparently doesn’t want to be found.
Haertle is described as a white male, age 41, dark hair and a full beard, 5 foot 7 and very thin.
Anyone seeing Haertle should immediately call 9-1-1 and give police the exact location of the sighting and what Haertle is wearing.
