Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputies reported at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday that a man missing from his Manatee County home has been discovered in Arizona.
According to reports, Wendell Dain drove away in his 2007 light-green Toyota Rav4 in an unknown direction about 7 a.m. Saturday Family members said they thought he might be traveling to Nevada to be near other family.
At the time, it was thought that Dain had taken a firearm with him, but the weapon was later found in the home.
"Mr. Dain has been located in Phoenix, Ariz. He is okay," emailed sheriff's office spokeman Dave Bristow.
