The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and Arab Police issued a missing senior alert Wednesday, but the man was found safe Thursday morning.
Elton Leon King, 68, was reported missing Wednesday afternoon by family members.
King had told family members he was going to Mississippi but they lost contact with him Wednesday, so they reported him missing.
Authorities said King may have been suffering from a condition that could impair his judgment.
The Colbert County Sheriff’s Office notified Arab police about 8:30 Thursday morning they had located King and that he was safe.
No other details were released.
