LIVONIA (WWJ) - Police say a 71-year-old man who went missing from a Livonia nursing home has been found safe.

Dimitri Marinov had been reported missing around 2:30 a.m. Friday from the St. Jude Nursing Center on Ann Arbor Trail, just east of Wayne Road. Police say no one saw him leave the location. 

Just before 9 a.m., police said Marinov had been located and was returned to the nursing home. Other details on his recovery weren't immediately released.

Officials were especially concerned about Marinov's disappearance because he has a brain injury, lacks some cognitive skills and suffers from dementia and anxiety.
