89-year-old New Yorker found safe after going missing

An elderly man who went missing in Lower Manhattan has been found safe, the NYPD said.

Candido Valentin, 89, was seen on Tuesday morning at a NYCHA residential property about a mile and a half from his home on Catherine Slip, police said. Then on Wednesday, he was reported missing.

He has dementia, so officials were concerned he may have needed medical treatment.

Police on Wednesday night sent word to media outlets that Valentin was located and is OK.
