NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges on Monday shed a little light more on the missing man that was located late last week.

Bridges said that 59-year-old Loyd Wade Alexander was found on the side of the road in Rusk County near the sheriff's office.

"He was taken to the local hospital and is in stable condition according to the hospital," Bridges said. "I do not know the reason why he was transported to the hospital, however I have learned that he was in the hospital the day before and was released in Henderson."

The NCSO canceled the missing person alert for Alexander on Friday. According to the alert, Alexander was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.

On March 1, he left Nacogdoches County in a maroon Chevy S10 and went to Lonoke, Ark., to drop off a man by the name of JJ. Alexander's daughter spoke with him on Sunday, and Alexander said he would be back to Nacogdoches the next day. However, he didn't show up, prompting his family members to file a missing person report with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office.
