The Fresno BeeMay 10, 2014 

A 72-year-old man who was reported missing Friday afternoon has been found in good health and was returned home, said Fresno County Sheriff's Lt. John Golden.

Ramon Bueno, who suffers from "decreased mental ability," was last seen around 3 p.m. Friday at the corner of Merced and M Streets in downtown Fresno, Golden said. His family didn't notice he had wandered off.

Bueno was found about 10 p.m. Friday by a Fresno resident who noticed him apparently disoriented, trying to cross the street in the area of Olive and Brawley avenues, west of Highway 99.

No foul play is suspected in Bueno's disappearance or recovery, Golden said.
