NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A World War II veteran from Harlem who disappeared last week has turned up safe in Las Vegas, according to reports.

Richard Micheaux, 92, who lives on Convent Avenue in Hamilton Heights, left home at about 8:30 a.m. July 1 for his usual walk to get a newspaper but didn't come home, authorities said.

Micheaux was wearing a beige baseball cap with the U.S. Open logo, blue jeans with a white zig-zag pattern and black shoes, police said.

Then Monday, July 7, the NYPD announced Micheaux was found "in good condition." Several reports said he turned up in Las Vegas, but it is not clear how he got there.
