A 75-year-old male reported missing in Cowichan has been located, and he is safe and sound, police said Thursday at around 5 p.m.

Police had sought the public's help in finding the Duncan senior who hadn't been seen in more than week.

Harvey Sloan left his residence on June 18, leaving a note for his landlord stating he wanted to be by himself, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday said earlier this week in a media release.

Sloan's landlord called police for assistance on June 23, as he had not returned home.

Mounties checked local island hospitals, hotels, and the places Sloan is known to frequent. Hobday said Sloan suffered from medical conditions and it was unknown if he had his medication with him.
