Man missing in Pennsburg

PENNSBURG, Pa. -

A man reported missing from an assisted-care facility in Montgomery County has been found safe and sound.

Police say 67-year-old George Warner was last seen June 24, walking southbound in the 200 block of Pottstown Avenue in Pennsburg.

Warner is a resident of the Pennsburg Assisted Care facility at 68 Main Street, and walked away from the facility at some point during the day Tuesday and did not return.

According to Upper Perk Police, Warner was found Friday, July 18, in Houston, Texas.

Police said he was "happy, healthy and doing fine."

There's no word on how he got to Texas.

Officials said Warner had talked about leaving the facility in the past, but due to his age and some health issues, there was concern for his well-being.
