Update on Perry F. Jones

Officials with Glennon Place Nursing Center say they have found a relative of Perry F. Jones.

Last week, The Northeast News featured a story about Jones who suffered a stroke and could not remember where he lived or much of his past before being hospitalized.

After the story ran neighbors who lived near Jones's old home recognized Jones's photo and knew he had a sister living in Sullivan — a small town just southwest of St. Louis. Neighbors contacted his sister and told her where she could find Jones.

Officials at Glennon said the sister had been trying to find Jones and had even enlisted the help of police. She plans to visit in th next week.
