Police say a 60-year-old patient missing from the Oregon State Hospital in Salem has been found in Corvallis. Gregory A. Page was reported missing Saturday when hospital workers made hourly rounds. Police say there's no evidence he had help escaping. Page was found guilty except for insanity in 1994 after he was charged in Lane County with attempted murder. He was accused of shooting a man he had been harassing in Florence. At the hospital, he lived in a group home on the grounds but outside the institution's secure perimeter. The Oregon Health Authority didn't consider him dangerous. In Corvallis, police said, medics got a call to a park Sunday afternoon, and a doctor suspected Page had given a false name. How Page got to Corvallis wasn't immediately known.
