MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A U.S. Army veteran with mental health issues has been reunited with his family in Washington state after traveling to Montana and then back to Spokane, Wash.

The Missoulian (http://bit.ly/KoM5bm ) reports 56-year-old Orin Storrud turned up at a homeless shelter in Spokane on Friday, the same day the paper reported he went missing from his sister's home in Deer Park, Wash., on April 23.

Mona Storrud says she received numerous phone calls from Missoula residents saying they'd seen Orin Storrud near a grocery store in Missoula on Thursday. She says he started walking home and was picked up and dropped off in Spokane, Wash.

Employees at a Polson hospital helped reunite Orin Storrud with his sister in October. At the time, she had not seen him in 14 years.
