WACO, TX — Waco Police were asking for help from the public in locating 81-year-old John Edward Mason, who was last seen Friday around 6:30 am leaving the Oyo Hotel at 500 N. Jack Kultgen Expressway.

Police said they were able to safely locate Mason on Thursday, July 8, 2021, after nearly 2 weeks of searching for him.

According to Mason's family, he was last seen wearing blue pants with a blue and white button-up shirt.

Mason is approximately 5'4" and weighs approximately 140lbs and suffers from some memory loss.

Mason's family says he doesn't know anyone in Waco and they were unsure where we could have gone.

A Silver Alert was never issued for Mason, because he does not qualify per the Department of Public Safety of the State of Texas (Texas DPS).

Mason left driving a grey Dodge Caravan with damage in both the rear and the front with Texas license plate number GRD 1668.

Police say Mason was at the bank at some point but left his cell phone there.
