An elderly man reported missing from Newfoundland has been found.

Police say 82-year-old William Francis King was located in Saint John, N.B earlier today.

His daughter, Tina Noel, had recently arrived in Halifax to search for her father.

She says he left his nursing home in Stephenville Crossing and withdrew money before taking the ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia.

King suffers from dementia so there were concerns for his safety.
