HAMPTON, Iowa - An 80-year-old man with dementia is back on his way to Iowa after being missing for two days.

Hampton Police Chief Robert Schaefer says James Boylan has been located in Nebraska and his family is heading there to pick him up.  Boylan was seen at the Hiway Mart in Clear Water at around noon Wednesday and authorities located him in Meadow Grove about a half-hour later.

Boylan reportedly left his home around 7:30 pm Monday, then was spotted around midnight at Fuel Time in St. Ansgar and was seen in Buffalo Center around 3:30 am.  Witnesses said Boylan was driving west and was seen at the First Co-op in Alta in Buena Vista County.

Boylan was then reported in Laurel, Nebraska, on Tuesday afternoon.

Chief Schaefer says on behalf of his department and Boylan's family, they would like to thank everyone who helped in the search.
