PORTAGEVILLE, Mo. - After disappearing for more than two weeks, officers find a Portageville man safe and sound.

Merrill Silman, 73, went missing July 3rd.

Officers spent several days searching for him before they got the call he might be in Oklahoma.

Detectives determined he had been using his debit card and withdrawing money from his bank account.

Officers say he is probably on his way to Texas. He has a brother there, but local family say it's a major relief to know he's safe.

Silman didn't do anything wrong, but officers do intend to track him down in Oklahoma because family would like to know for sure he is okay.
