The pensioner got lost while he visiting his daughter who only lived 60 minutes away.
The pensioner was eventually found by police still in his car after a major search when concerned relatives reported him missing.
His car was seen on a police camera only 10km from his intended destination yesterday but he was not seen again until today.
A source told us “he had stopped to catch up on some much needed sleep before setting off again. He is after all 82 years old. Presumably he put fuel in the car during the service stops over the two days”.
The pensioner has been reunited with his daughter safe and well.
