Search for Missing Bedford Resident John Vasile Successful
By First Assistant Fire Chief Andrew Klein
August 15, 2018

After three days of searching on land and water the Bedford Fire Department is proud to say that John Vasile has been found and reunited with his family. Today the Bedford Fire Department was out searching for Vasile with assistance from Bedford Hills FD and Pound Ridge FD, along with officers from the Bedford Police. We had five search teams containing five members each searching all the roads around the Vasile residence. Late this morning one of the teams radioed the command post that they had found Vasile and that he was conscious and alert. A BFD ambulance standing by at the search transported Vasile with his family to Northern Westchester Hospital for evaluation. The members of the Bedford Fire Department would like to thank all the departments that helped for the past three days and made it possible to reunite this family.
