BIRMINGHAM, Ala. РAccording to our news partners at AL.com, Birmingham Police reported a missing man in Birmingham has been found in South Carolina.

70-year-old, Bruce Green left The University of Birmingham Highlands around 9 p.m. Thursday, says police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards.

Green was supposed to leave the hospital and head home, but never showed up.

A deputy in South Carolina stopped Green overnight because he was driving a 2003 Ford Mustang around in the parking lot of a business there.

Green told the deputy he thought he was still in Birmingham and was just a few blocks from his home.

Edwards said his family members are being notified.

Authorities say Green suffers from minor dementia.
