An elderly man who had gone missing from his home Tuesday night has been found safe and is now back with his family.

Lubbock police officers reported locating 68-year-old Houston Cummings last night. He was found to be unharmed.

There had been concern when Cummings went missing from his residence at 300 North Clinton Avenue because he suffers from dementia and can be disoriented or confused.

LPD returned Cummings to his family last night.
