LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A missing 72-year-old man has been found a few hours after he disappeared from west Louisville. 

John Vincent DeFazio, went missing around 8:45 Thursday morning, near the intersection of Bank Street and N. 17th Street, in Louisville. Police say he was found walking on the Lincoln Bridge Thursday afternoon. 

According to police, DeFazio was discovered by a Walsh Construction worker who thought it was odd that an elderly man was walking alone on the Lincoln Bridge. The employee put DeFazio into his truck and kept him safe until police arrived. 

Authorities say he suffers from dementia, but there are no immediate issues regarding his health.
