MESA, Ariz. – Police have located a Mesa man who was reported missing on Wednesday.

Wendell Lee Workman, 71, had talked about possibly visiting his brother in Phoenix, but he never arrived and his brother had not heard from him.

One of the victim’s sons said he left his father alone at about 5 a.m. to go to work for about two hours until Workman's other son could be with their father.

When the second son arrived at Workman’s residence in the 500 block of Del Oro, he was gone and so was his vehicle.

Although Workman has not been diagnosed as having Alzheimer’s disease, his sons said he has displayed symptoms such as getting lost easily.

Fort McDowell police found Workman parked along the side of a road at 4 a.m. Thursday. Police said Workman was found alive and well.
