An 84-year-old man who was last seen Wednesday on Vashon Island was found alive Saturday afternoon a couple of miles from his home.

Jack Randles, who has Alzheimer’s disease, was found around 2:30 p.m. when homeowners returned to their house in the Point Robinson area of the island and discovered Randles sleeping in a bed, the King County Sheriff’s Office said.

“Randles had cuts and scrapes on his face, legs and knees but otherwise appeared to be in good health,” Cindi West of the sheriff’s office said in a news release. He was taken to Highline Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Randles was last seen Wednesday afternoon walking in his pajamas not far from his home. More than 60 volunteers from the King County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Unit had searched daily for Randles, the sheriff’s office said.
