York Regional Police say they've found a man who was reported missing Tuesday afternoon.

Sundarlingam Periyathamby, 52, was located in Vaughan Wednesday afternoon after a phone call from a "concerned citizen," police said in a statement on Twitter. He was found in "good health" but taken to the hospital as a precaution, they said.

On Tuesday, police notified the public that they were concerned for Periyathamby's safety.

Investigators had set up a command post near Martin Grove and Steeles West, and combed wooded areas in their search.
