HONOR, Mich. Authorities in northern lower Michigan have found an elderly man with Alzheimer's disease who disappeared a day earlier.

The Benzie County sheriff's department says that 83-year-old Loyal Frederick disappeared Tuesday from his home in the Honor area, about 30 miles southwest of Traverse City.

Sheriff Ted Schendel tells the Traverse City Record-Eagle that a volunteer searcher spotted Frederick "alive and conscious" about 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Frederick says Frederick will likely receive medical treatment at Munson Medical Center.
