GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An 88-year-old man who went missing Thursday after dropping off his wife at a store has been found and is safe, Grand Rapids police say.

Around 12:30 p.m., Neuben White dropped his wife off at Duthler’s Family Foods, located at 1226 Madison Ave. SE. He was supposed to wait for his wife in the parking lot, but when she finished shopping, he was gone.

The Grand Rapids Police Department said White suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. They were concerned because he did not have a cellphone, did not know his house phone number and was not wearing his glasses.

Around 9 p.m., GRPD said White had been found and was “safe and sound.”

Police thanked the public for their help in finding him.
