BAY CITY, Mich. (WJRT) - An Endangered Missing Advisory has been canceled for an 88-year-old man who was reported missing from a Walmart in Bay City on Wednesday morning.

Michigan State Police say George Paul Sivertson was outside the store while his wife was shopping inside. He apparently drove off, but family members say he has dementia and is not supposed to drive alone.

The Ogemaw County Sheriff’s Office found Sivertson safe early Wednesday afternoon and he was returned to family.
