91-Year-Old Santee Man Who Drove Away From Home Found

A 91-year-old Santee man who left his home Thursday afternoon, believing that he had a medical appointment, has been found.

Ralph Solis Reyes Sr. drove away from his home in a red, 4-door 1999 Chevrolet Metro, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO).

When his son, Ralph Solis Reyes Jr., called him on his cell phone around noon, Reyes said he was heading to a medical appointment somewhere in San Diego.

Reyes' son told deputies his father did not have any medical appointment Thursday.

His phone was later turned off or not working, SDSO said.

The California Highway Patrol issued a Silver Alert for Reyes while he was missing.

He was found early Friday morning.
