Police in Ocean City, N.J., said an elderly couple reported missing on Saturday were located Sunday evening at a shopping mall in Jackson Township, about 90 minutes drive from Ocean City.

Describing the couple as "safe and sound," an Ocean City police spokesman said they apparently approached a security guard at the mall and asked for help finding their way back home.

John Bligh, 78, and his wife, Ellen, 70, were last seen around 3:30 p.m. Saturday leaving their home on the 1900 block of Glenwood Drive in a 2004 white Toyota Camry.

Family members told police that the Blighs sometimes become confused and may be in the early stages of Alzheimer's or dementia.


New Jersey State Police had issued a Silver Alert Sunday morning.   - Jessica Parks
