A Wilton Manors man, who was missing for almost a week, has been reunited with his family.
The Wilton Manors Police Department issued the following news release: “Missing Person Mr. James Doan has been safely located. He is in good health and reunited with his family. Thank you to our community partners-community members and the Broward Sheriff’s Office for assisting us with locating him.”
Doan, a humanities professor at Nova Southeastern University, went missing from his Wilton Manors home on the evening of Jan. 30. His husband, Brad Zuckerman, said the 69-year-old Doan was suffering from mental health issues.
“JIM HAS BEEN FOUND!” Zuckerman posted on Facebook at 3:16 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4. “He’s tired, and dirty but fine! Thank you for all your prayers and all the help. We love you all.”
During the search, SFGN reached out to the Stonewall National Museum Archives and Library, where Doan had recently served on the board of directors. Executive Director Robert Kesten described Doan as a “nice, kind, gentle and intelligent man.” Doan, Kesten said, had been helpful in preparation for the museum’s upcoming 50th anniversary gala (Feb. 25).
