Authorities in Montgomery County find an 83 year old Alzheimer's patient who wandered away from home.
The elderly Blacksburg man was found today- he'd been missing for almost two days. Tonight his family says he's in good condition at Montgomery Regional Hospital.
It was about 11:30 this morning, when crews carried Thomas Marlowe out of a wooded area.
He was found about a half a mile away from the assisted living facility where he was staying.
The 83 year old suffers from Alzheimers disease. Hundreds had been looking for him since he left the Warm Hearth Village on Saturday evening.
A facility spokesman says he was wearing a security bracelet to prevent this situation.

[OUT Q=from here]
Stone says officials are meeting with the manufacturer of the security bracelet tomorrow to figure out why it apparently failed to set off the alarms.
Thomas Marlowe will be kept in the hospital overnight for observation.
At first officials believed a man drowned over the weekend, but now they suspect it was a heart attack that killed him.
49-year-old Michael Stewart was at Claytor Lake in Pulaski County on Sunday when witnesses said he started gasping for air near his sailboat.
Officials say the man was wearing a life jacket.
On the way to the hospital, dispatch workers say he went into cardiac arrest.
Authorities are no longer classifying the incident as a drowning.
It was a wedding gift that turned into tragedy.
A newlywed given a plane ride as a wedding gift is killed when the plane crashes.
22 year old Sarah Hanson and her husbnad Brad flipped a coin to see who would take the first ride-
Brad went first on Friday... then he wife went the next day. Brad was shooting video of the ride when the plane's left wing fell off in the air and the jet went crashing to the ground- killing the bride and the pilot.
Federal officials are investigating to see what caused the crash.
Imagine a hot day like today and no power-
That's what Californians are bracing for-
Power officials are warning homeowners to expect rolling blackouts- Chris Lawrence has more.

State police say a man from Goodview is dead and a woman injured, following a single- vehicle accident yesterday.
Authorities say the crash occurred just off route 886, nearly a mile south of Route 24 in Bedford County.
They say 35-year old Charles Allen Pugh ran off the right side of the road, then swerved to the left side, and struck a utility pole.
Pugh was killed instantly.
30- year old Deborah Charlene Morrison of Goodview was thrown from the vehicle. She was taken to Roanoke Memorial
Hospital where there is no report on her condition.[5-Lawrence-Transportation]
A major Botetourt County employer is expanding -- with plans to add 100 more jobs in the next year.
Lawrence Transportation Systems, a moving and storage company, plans to take over the shell building that once belonged to Tower Automotive.
The company will pay one-point-three million dollars for the building in Vista Corporate Park.
It's next to Lawrence's current plant, which employs 220 people.

That's what Danville's Housing Authority is learning the hard way.
Last July, HUD awarded the Housing Authority a 20-million dollar HOPE SIX grant to help public housing residents become home owners.
To accomplish that, the city plans to demolish the Liberty View Housing Project and build 161 single family homes.
But now the project has been delayed more than six months because of government red tape.

You can burn up to 600 calories in 20 minutes depending on your age and how much moving you do.
