An 82-year-old man sparked a search involving the Sussex Police helicopter after going missing in Horsham.
Ronald Jarman was reported missing from Waitrose at 2.50pm yesterday. He had left the store at 11.20am, stating he was going home, but did not return home until last night.
Sgt Steve Cobbett, of Sussex Police, said before Mr Jarman turned up: “We are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. He doesn’t have any money with him and is known to become confused.”
