An 89 year-old man missing about one day in Irvine was located Saturday, authorities said.

“Mr. Darwish was located earlier this afternoon and is back home with his family,” the Irvine Police Department said in a tweet at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Fawzi Darwish was previously last seen about 1:30 p.m. Friday near his home in the area of Alton Parkway and Harvard Avenue, police said.

Darwish was considered a critical missing adult because he suffers from dementia, is hard of hearing and is known to take buses to Anaheim, Costa Mesa and Garden Grove.
