A Venice couple, who each have dementia and evacuated ahead of Hurricane Irma, was found alive and well after the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office had concerns they may be struggling as they returned home.
Silver Alerts were canceled for Milan Yezic, 89, and his wife, Lucille Yezic, 86, on Wednesday afternoon after they were found.
They had last been seen at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday at a gas station near Interstate 75 in the Ocala area, according to a news release. They both suffer from varying degrees of dementia and were driving home from Pennsylvania after evacuating ahead of Hurricane Irma.
The sheriff’s office asked again for the public’s help early Wednesday after the couple had not yet returned to their home on Golf Club Lane in Venice.

Detectives confirmed that the couple appeared to be headed home by tracing their bank records. The couple used their credit cards at gas stations in Georgia and Wildwood, the sheriff’s office said.
