Robert Kenneth Deliman, a Dravosburg man who was reported missing on Tuesday night, returned home on Thursday evening.

“He returned safely,” McKeesport Capt. of Detectives Tim Hanna said shortly after 5 p.m., when the department was notified by a family member that Deliman came home.

Prior to his return, the 47-year-old Deliman hadn't been seen since Monday at approximately 2:30 p.m. Prior to leaving his residence, he packed clothing, a rope and batteries, but left his cell phone at home, police said.

On Wednesday, police said Deliman was considered to be endangered because his family reported that he has attempted to harm himself in the past.

“We've checked several locations for him,” Hanna said Thursday morning. “We haven't located him at this time, but he did attempt to make contact with family.”

Deliman left a voicemail for a family member late Tuesday or early Wednesday. In that message, Deliman stated he was “OK but out and about.”
