An 89-year-old Arlington Heights man missing since Friday has been located safe in Southwest suburban Lockport, police said Sunday.

Joseph McMahon was found in his car at 3:30 a.m. Sunday in what police described as "a state of mental confusion." He was transported to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox for evaluation, police said.

McMahon was found about five hours after Arlington Heights police issued a news release asking for the public's help in locating him. McMahon had last been seen Friday driving a 1998 red, four-door Oldsmobile.

In the news release, police said McMahon has no mental illness, but does have a history of becoming confused while driving and becoming lost.
