Missing panhandle man found in SJC

A missing Florida panhandle man was located in St. Johns County Wednesday.

St. Johns County deputies responding to a report that an elderly man was driving around in circles in a northeast SJC neighborhood stopped the 79-year-old driver who gave them a Tennessee driver's license. Deputies said the driver appeared confused and began to fall asleep. SJC fire-rescue was called and took the driver to a local emergency room for evaluation.

A background on the man determined he was listed as a missing-endangered person from Okaloosa County. Okaloosa County authorities were notified of his whereabouts.
