Six hours after a Mattie's Call alert reported Jonnie Pryor missing, the 81-year-old Columbus man was found by authorities in Saraland, Ala., his wife said late Thursday.
Mary Pryor said she was contacted by authorities about 4 p.m. and told her husband was safe. "I'm glad it turned out good," she said.
The wife said her husband apparently made a wrong turn after he left their home on Azalea Court about 10 a.m. Thursday. He was driving a 1998 black Honda Accord.
Saraland is about 240 miles from Columbus.
