The Gwinnett County Police Department has located an elderly man reported missing.

William J. Lang, 84, was last seen at his home on Wycliffe Way in unincorporated Stone Mountain.

The family tells authorities Lang wanted his wife to go driving around looking for his lost dog. When the wife wasn’t looking, Lang grabbed the car keys and left his home around 6 p.m. He hasn’t driven a vehicle in about 4 years and he has no cell phone on him.

Lang contacted his wife on Thursday around 11 p.m. and told her he was ok and at the Kroger in Grayson. An officer in the area traveled to the store while the family was en route. Lang is in good health and was reunited with his family.
