Janusz Torbus | Chicago Police

A 76-year-old priest who was reported missing Monday night from the Portage Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side has been found.

Janusz Torbus was last seen about 1:40 p.m. Monday at a Sears store at Irving Park Road and Cicero Avenue, according to Chicago Police.

Torbus worked as a priest in Poland, but was not a practicing priest in Chicago.

Torbus only speaks Polish and has been diagnosed with dementia. It was believed he might have gotten on a CTA bus, and would likely not have been able to find his way home, police said.

Police said about 9 p.m. Monday that Torbus had been found and returned home.
