HARDY, Ark. (KAIT) -A Hardy man Sharp County authorities have been searching for since Sunday was found at his home.

74-year-old William Harvey Largent was reported missing to authorities on June 9.

According to Hardy Police Chief Tamara Taylor, his caregiver said he had been pulled over by authorities in West Memphis, claiming he was on his way to a doctor’s appointment.

He was detained when law enforcement discovered he didn’t have a license to drive.

He then called his caregiver, who told him to wait there while they drove from Hardy to pick him up.

When the caregiver arrived at 231 East Broadway Street near the Region’s Bank he was nowhere to be found.

His bank account had also been emptied and he wasn’t answering his cell phone.

Chief Taylor said she was happy to report that Largent managed to make it back home while he was being searched for.

Taylor said they believe Largent hired someone to give him a ride back home.
