Police Officers in Amherstburg assisted an elderly couple who got lost in the town, thinking they were still in Etobicoke.

Police say around 4:30am on Sunday, December 15th, 2019 officers stopped a vehicle in the 100 block of Sandwich Street South.

Officers spoke to an elderly couple in the vehicle and learned they had been driving for several hours after getting lost trying to get home. The couple from Etobicoke believed they were still in that area and had no idea they had driven all the way to Amherstburg.

Officers offered to bring the pair to the Amherstburg detachment until their family could be located and apprised of the situation. The couple was unable to provide information in relation to any family contacts, however, officers were ultimately able to make contact with family members and arrangements were made to pick the couple up from the Amherstburg Detachment.

Officers provided food, a place to rest and watch television for the couple while they waited, and they were checked by medical personnel to ensure there were no health concerns.

After a lengthy stay at the detachment, family arrived, and the couple was brought back to Etobicoke safely.
