Missing Old Man Found Alive and OK

Good news, you can all off the search -- an officer from the Department of Public Safety has found an 84-year-old man reported missing yesterday.

The officer found Edward Reed, who served in the Merchant Marines during World War II, on Hunt Highway last night.

Reed left his house in Phoenix around 3 p.m. Sunday. He left in his car and hadn't been heard from since.

Reed suffers from Alzheimer's Disease and has previously had a stroke. Police were worried he might be confused about his name. 

According to authorities, he likely doesn't know his address, phone number, or how to get home and had no wallet or cell phone.

Well, worry no more -- Reed's alive, and is said to be OK. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
