Anchorage Police say thanks to a tip, they found an 88-year-old man who suffers from severe dementia at Walmart.

APD spokesperson Renee Oistad said Leonard Bibler was found safe after a citizen notified police after seeing Bibler at the store. 

He was last seen outside the Sheraton Hotel Downtown at 11 a.m. Sunday. Family told APD that Bibler indicated he wanted to get a room there, but when they checked on him a few hours later, they discovered he never went inside the hotel.

On Monday, Oistad said Bibler enjoys staying at hotels and he also likes stairwells. Police believed Bibler was likely in the downtown area.
