UPDATE: A Waldwick military veteran who wandered off from home Saturday morning was found Monday afternoon at Woodbury Commons in Orange County -- after walking there.
Thomas Podschelne, 59, was recognized by someone at the shopping center -- 25 miles from home -- after seeing one of the Facebook postings seeking help finding him.
"He walked there!" his relieved daughter, Chelsea, told Daily Voice after picking him up around 3:45 p.m.
Health-wise, "he seems OK," she said, "just a little sunburned."
Podschelne, who suffers from severe PTSD, didn't show up for his part-time night shift Saturday at the Stop & Shop on Broad Street in Clifton.
Podschelne, who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom a decade ago, had gone missing before but never for more than a half-day, loved ones said.
Authorities and citizens were notified throughout Bergen, Passaic and Rockland counties were notified. Orange County is just north and west of Rockland.
