A North Port man who was reported missing on Sunday has been located safe and sound in Tennessee.

86-year old Lazar Tapesh told police he was “driving to Romania,” which his family says may have been Detroit, where they previously lived.

The elderly man, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, was found Monday afternoon near Chattanooga, TN.

A Silver Alert was issued as police tracked Tapesh’s phone up I-75 through Georgia. He’s expected to be returned back to family in North Port this week.
