An elderly man in Kingsland was located safe Friday night after walking away from his home, according to the Kingsland Police Department.

Many people joined in the search including friends, neighbors, Camden County deputies, search and rescue units, tracking dog teams, State Rangers, Georgia State Patrol, and Camden County Fire Rescue.
