MILLCREEK — Unified Police said a 75-year-old man who disappeared Wednesday has been found in the Salt Lake City area.

Joseph “Jerry” Olpin had been last seen around 6:30 at his Millcreek home.

According to a press release from the Unified Police Department, Olpin was doing yardwork just before he disappeared. Olpin’s wife went out to get him around 8 p.m., but he was gone.

Police said they were particularly concerned about Olpin due to the fact that he has Alzheimer’s disease and he wasn’t dressed for the rainy and cold conditions.

Olpin was found after “[a] TV viewer saw him and called UPD,” a posting on the Unified Police Facebook page said.
