SACRAMENTO - A Sacramento man missing since Sunday was located, deputies reported Tuesday morning.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department put out an appeal for information on the whereabouts of 79-year-old Gene Cargile Monday. Sgt. Lisa Bowman said he vanished after last being seen at his home on the 5000 block of Hackberry Lane around 6:30 Sunday morning when leaving for church. He was supposed to return about four hours later but he didn't, although his vehicle somehow reappeared at his home a little later, Bowman said.

Investigators learned Cargile also didn't attend church, Bowman said.

Cargile returned home and was safe, according to an update from Bowman Tuesday morning.
