A 79-year-old man who was reported missing in northern Sydney on Tuesday was found alive on the fourth day of searches for him.
Police desperately appealed to residents near Wahroonga to check their sheds and garages Thursday in hopes of finding Ronald Weaver, who has Alzheimer’s disease.
More than 100 responders took part in land and air searches this week to find Weaver after he was reportedly spotted by a member of the public near Cliff Reserve.
He was found by a NSW SES search team wedged between trees in North Wahroonga bushland around 11.30am on Friday.
He has since been freed and treated at the scene by paramedics from the NSW Ambulance.
“He is being taken to hospital for treatment and some much-needed rest,” NSW Police said in a statement.
“Thank you to the media and community members who have supported us in sharing our call for help.”
