Ron Kissel was last seen walking in the Cotton Creek Drive in the Macedonia community just east of Canton on Thursday afternoon, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies said a pickup truck parked nearby is also missing.
Investigators said after going door-to-door, reviewing nearby home surveillance videos, and checking area businesses, they believe Kissel left the area in the white Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck with Georgia tag BXG7486. Deputies said it was spotted by a traffic camera in Gwinnett County around 3:32 p.m.
Deputies said Kissel who has been diagnosed with dementia, was found safe in Monticello, about 60 miles southeast of Atlanta.
He appeared to be OK, deputies said.
