KELO-TV in Sioux Falls reports that 82-year-old Leonard Johnson was discovered a nearly six-hour drive from home in Grand Rapids, Minn. He hadn't been seen since Friday. Police and motorists had been asked to keep watch out for his vehicle -- a blue 1990 Ford F-150 truck.

WDAY-TV had reported that a man matching his description was reported being seen at a car dealership early Saturday asking for directions.

Officials say Johnson might have gotten turned around by the day's dense fog. Further details weren't immediately available.
