A man from Raleigh Hills who was reported missing Thursday was found Friday morning in Gold Beach.

76-year-old Bob Alperin went to Lloyd Center on Thursday to meet friends. He left them around 1 p.m. and around 5 p.m. private security with the mall found him and helped him find his car. He never made it home.

Alperin's family says he's been experiencing mild cognitive impairment that causes him to become disoriented and confused. 

Oregon State Police found Alperin Friday morning in Gold Beach on the southern Oregon Coast.

They stayed with him until his family arrived to take him home.
