Missing man stumbles into barbershop, reported safe and sound

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Joseph Brown, who was reported missing over the weekend, stumbled into Trimmers Barbershop Monday.

The shop is closed on Mondays, but the owner, Cook, had an appointment to fulfill.

“As I’m here cutting hair, I look at the door and a guy comes in,” Cook told Channel 9. “He’s a little disoriented, so I’m, like, I look again and I’m, like, ‘That’s the guy on the news.’”

Cook said he went online and checked the news and learned Brown, who had been missing since Saturday, had a medical condition.

Brown, 77, vanished from his home on Kestrel Court in west Charlotte and made it to Trimmers, which is about two miles always.

Cook called 911, and police alerted Brown's family.

Cook said Brown's son was so thankful he was found alive and safe.

“I basically was like, 'Man, you don’t owe me anything,’ because when I saw him embrace his father, it kind of made me feel good,” Cook said. “That was priceless to actually see them reunited.”
