ARLINGTON, Wash. – Sheriff’s deputies are asking for the public’s help to find the home of an elderly man who was found wandering on a road between Marysville and Arlington this morning.  A passerby called 911 around 6 AM to report that an elderly man wearing blue and black plaid pajama bottoms, a dark blue shirt, and white socks was walking along McElroy Rd near 164th St NE. 

Deputies arrived and the man identified himself as John Wesley Dilley.  Dilley was disoriented and could not remember where he lives.  Dilley has white hair, blue eyes, is 5’11” tall, and weighs 150 lbs. 

Deputies have exhausted all means of identifying the man and finding his home.  Please call 911 if you have any information about John Dilley or where he might live so that we can return him home.
