TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - An 80-year-old man who was reported missing Sunday morning has been located, according to the Tucson Police Department.

Police and the family of Enrique Suarez reached him by phone and found out he was at Mount Turnbull Apache Market in Bylas, Ariz., which is northwest of Safford, according to TPD Sgt. Kimberly Bay, a department spokeswoman.

TPD asked officers from the San Carlos Apache Police Department to meet Suarez at the market until family members could get to him. He was not injured.

Suarez was last seen around 6:45 Sunday morning as he left his home in the 2600 block of West Calle Cuero de Vaca, in the area of Ironwood Hills and Greasewood, Bay said earlier.

"He's not diagnosed with anything, but his family says he's become increasingly forgetful," Bay said.

When he left home, he was headed for the Chuze Fitness at North Oracle and West Wetmore roads, but he never arrived, Bay said.
