UPDATE: Missing Cedar Falls man found

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Family say 83-year-old Merlin McCabe was found on Thursday morning in the Quad Cities area.

McCabe had been missing since leaving home around 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

McCabe was supposed to be heading to the Black Hawk County Courthouse Tuesday. No one had heard from him since.

Family members say he was pulled over and given a speeding ticket in Illinois Tuesday night, but it was before a national alert could be issued. He was believed to have $200 when he left.

On Wednesday, police traced a purchase on McCabe's credit card to a Chicago gas station.

On Thursday morning, family members say McCabe was picked up by state troopers in the Quad Cities area when he ran out of gas.
