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.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
