Fredericksburg senior found safe

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -  A missing Fredericksburg man was found safe Friday morning in Loveville, Maryland, ending a two-day search.

The St. Mary's County Sheriffs Office found 82-year-old Gilbert Wood Sr. at a convenience store when checking on a report of a confused elderly man. He was not in any medical distress and his car was found in the store's parking lot.

State Police issued a Senior Alert earlier this week when a friend of Wood from the Mill Park Terrace apartments in Fredericksburg reported him missing.

Wood has been reunited with family, who were provided information about the Police Department's Project Lifesaver program.
