    A Yeadon, Pennsylvania man who went missing in April has been found safe.

    John Lenker, 67, was reported missing after he was last seen at a gas station in Philadelphia back on April 12. Officials said he may have been displaying early signs of dementia. They also said he may have been transferred to Temple University Hospital since his disappearance though workers at the hospital didn't have any records showing anyone with that name checking in.

    On Friday, Greater Philadelphia Search & Rescue chief Mark Hopkins confirmed with NBC10 Lenker was found safe and was under medical care. Hopkins said increased visibility after NBC10 posted the initial story on Lenker's disappearance helped lead to his identification.

    Police have not yet revealed the specific location where Lenker was found.
