ST. PETERSBURG — A Gadsden County man with dementia sought under a Silver Alert was found in Tampa on Wednesday.
William Arnold Buchanan, 78, went missing from Quincy, outside of Tallahassee, on Tuesday. Family members tracked his movements through his bank account and found he had visited a gas station in South Pasadena in Pinellas County around 4:15 a.m. Wednesday.
He later used his debit card at a St. Petersburg gas station, said his brother-in-law, David Britner, retired fire marshal for St. Petersburg Fire Rescue.
Buchanan may have returned to the area because he used to live off 66th Street North in Pinellas Park, family members said.
Buchanan was lost but was fine, physically, when he was located, a niece said.
