Tulsa Police have located a missing man with Alzheimer’s.

Family members say 57 year old Donald Barnes' wife last saw him when she left for work Tuesday morning around 5 AM.

Barnes ended up making his way to Missouri. Tulsa Police say his credit card was used today in Ava, Missouri, about 60 miles southeast of Springfield.

Shortly afterward, he started asking for directions back to Tulsa. He received those directions, and returned home safely Wednesday evening.
