An 85-year-old man who went missing in downtown St. Paul Tuesday morning was found safe in Minneapolis.

St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos told the Pioneer Press that a tip led officers to Robert Oslund, who was located at a bus stop in the Seward neighborhood at 27th Avenue South and East 25th Street.

Authorities had asked for the public's help in finding Oslund, raising concerns about his safety in 90-degree temperatures.

Paulos said Oslund was in good health when found and is being returned to his daughter.

According to police, Oslund was on his way to a guardianship hearing Tuesday morning with his 62-year-old daughter. The Star Tribune said Oslund's daughter was taking her father to a hearing to have him declared a vulnerable adult.

Worried that the court would determine that he wasn't able to care for himself, Oslund punched his daughter and disappeared, the newspaper reported.
