A Boothwyn man who got lost on a trip to Walmart and ended up 900 miles away in Alabama is home safe in what family members are calling a "Christmas miracle."
Jody Tarbutton, 89, left home on Dec. 17 in his 2010 silver Toyota Tacoma and headed out to pick up electrical supplies, according to a story on WVTM13-TV.
Tarbutton, who has dementia, took a wrong turn in the bad weather and kept driving, hoping to find his way home. 
When relatives couldn't find him, they contacted police, filed a missing persons report and blanketed social media with his photo.

"HELP!!! My grandfather Jody Tarbutton has not been seen since yesterday at noon in Boothwyn, PA. He is 89 and suffers from dementia. Please say a prayer and keep your eye out for him. He's in a 2010 silver Toyota Tacoma. Thank you," Traci Porter Raftowich posted on Facebook.

Tarbutton eventually realized he needed help and approached two Haleyville, Ala., police officers eating in a restaurant and told them he was lost. Once the officers saw the Pennsylvania driver's license, they contacted the elderly man's family.
"Man said I drove 900 miles and I don't remember," Tarbutton told the station.
"Christmas miracle. ... our Dad has been located safe and alive in Alabama," Cindy Gatta posted on Facebook just before boarding a plane Tuesday to get her father. She thanked police and the media for their help in locating her missing father. 
Tarbutton's truck will be towed back with the help of Alabamians, according to the story.
