Before he was reported missing, Tribbitt last was seen about 4 p.m. Thursday in Addison, where he was staying at a hotel with a church group.

Simo said Tribbitt originally is from the Chicago area, but was unfamiliar with the "heavily wooded area" where he went missing.

"Family and friends were very concerned about him," Simo said. "We looked for him all night."

Simo said this is not the first time Tribbitt has gone missing, so Addison police were happy to find him unharmed.
