SAN FRANCISCO—At 10:23 a.m. on May 30, San Francisco resident Johnny Armstrong, 75, who was reported missing eight days earlier was found.

On May 22, a missing person report was filed for Armstrong at the Bayview Station of the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD). The last time he was seen was three days earlier, on May 19, at around 1:00 p.m. He was departing from his home on the 1600 block of Revere Avenue and had reportedly been wearing sweatpants.

Once the missing person report was filed, the SFPD released a statement requesting the public assistance in trying to locate Armstrong. He was considered at risk “due to his age and to health matters,” according to the police department’s statement.
