An at-risk 78-year-old man who had gone missing in West Hollywood was found Tuesday after authorities activated a Silver Alert.

The California Highway Patrol asked for the public’s help in locating Abdul Zaheri, who had last been seen at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday near the intersection of North Laurel Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.

“Thank you to everyone involved in his safe return,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

Sheriff’s officials said Zaheri has Alzheimer’s disease and high blood pressure.   

Authorities did not release information on how or where Zaheri was found, and no further details were immediately available.
