Upper Hutt: Missing 84yr old man found

The 84-year-old man missing in the Upper Hutt suburb of Trentham has returned home safe and well.

 Police had just begun widening the search for the man who went for a walk Sunday night at 9 o’clock thinking it was morning and failed to return. There were concerns he may have become confused.

Searchers scoured the area overnight on foot, bicycle and by car. The man was fairly fit and had carried out a 10 kilometre walk last week, so rescuers believed he could have wandered quite a distance.

 The man returned home this morning.
