Project Lifesaver works to recover missing 86 year old man Media release: November 7, 2018 In the evening hours of Monday, November 5th, Vona Wohlenberg called to report her husband, 86 year old Dan Wohlenberg missing from their home in the 13800 block of 99th Street in Fellsmere. Mrs. Wohlenberg said that she believed he had been missing for approximately one hour and had left the residence on foot. Mr. Wohlenberg was outfitted with a Project Lifesaver bracelet, used for those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Autism, and anyone who may go missing. Deputies immediately deployed their Project Lifesaver equipment and found Mr. Wohlenberg sleeping under palmetto bushes on their seventeen acre property. EMS responded and verified that he did not have any injuries before he was reunited with his wife. Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar stated, “Project Lifesaver saved Mr. Wohlenberg’s life Monday night. Were it not for this program, we would have spent hours trying to locate Mr. Wohelberg. We know we have many more people in our county who should have Project Lifesaver bracelets, as evinced by our frequent searches for those without bracelets. The program was designed by former law enforcement for speedy recovery of those who may wander. We hope anyone out there with a family member or friend in need of this technology hears about the program and has them sign up before they go missing.” The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office has participated in Project Lifesaver for more than a decade. You can find out more about the program by visiting their website at . Locally, the program is administered by the Alzheimer and Parkinson Association of Indian River County.

On November 1, 2018, Joshua Michael Ryan (27) was involved in a disturbance in the 8800 block of 50th Avenue where he battered a disabled person. While fleeing on foot, he was spotted running into the Vero Beach Campground. Once there, he stole a vehicle and struck an Indian River County Sheriff’s deputy’s car as he fled the scene. With deputies in pursuit, Ryan traveled several routes including south on 66th Avenue, west on State Road 60, and south on I-95. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit maintained contact with the suspect as he fled into St. Lucie County where he was apprehended near mile marker 133. He was taken into custody and faces multiple charges in St. Lucie County as well as pending counts of vehicle theft, battery on a disabled person, fleeing and eluding law enforcement, and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer in Indian River County.
