A missing elderly Omokoroa man with Alzheimers has been found safe and well yesterday.
Police thanked the public for their assistance in a written statement.
Police were searching for the man after he wandered off from family on Saturday night.
Kevin Lipinski left a Harbour View Rd address at 6.30pm last and did not return.
Police said in a statement Lipinski has severe Alzheimers and can be non-responsive when approached.
He was reportedly wearing blue shorts and a navy jersey when last seen.
Police asked Omokoroa residents to check their sections, including any sheds and boats, in case Lipinski may have sought shelter from the weather.
