A missing 64-year-old Rome man was found safe and sound in the city on Sunday with the help of the reverse emergency calling system, according to Rome Police officials.

The alert went out shortly after 9 a.m. for Thomas Sulleski, who suffers from dementia.

Police said Sulleski walked away from a residence in the 400 block of Floyd Avenue. With the help of the public, police said that Sulleski
was located a short time later.

The reverse emergency calling system automatically calls landline telephones throughout the city to alert residents to dangers or incidents.

The system was “extremely helpful in finding him,” said Police Lt. James P. Boyer this morning. Residents who were alerted to the missing man telephoned back to police about possible sightings until Sulleski was located.
