TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Authorities in Tucson say a man with advanced Alzheimer's disease who had been reported missing early on New Year's Day has been found alive and in what they call "relatively good health."

Tucson police say 92-year-old Genaro Chavarria was reported missing at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. His family believed he left his home at about 2 a.m.

The department issued a news release at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday indicating Chavarria had been located, and that he suffered only from minor scrapes and the effects of exposure. The overnight low in Tucson was 32 degrees.

The release said Chavarria would be checked over by medical personnel to ensure he was healthy before being returned to his residence.

The circumstances of his disappearance weren't immediately clear.
