A 75-year-old Hesperia man with dementia who has been missing since Monday was found alive Tuesday morning.


Jose Meza walked away from his Oxford Avenue home at approximately 12:30 p.m. on February 2. Meza suffers from an undiagnosed form of mental illness, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.


Sheriff's department personnel and volunteers searched for Meza overnight, and picked up the search again today, by land and air.


Meza was found at approximately 11:30 a.m. in Silverwood and has been reunited with his family.
