A Toms River man reported missing Aug. 8 was found the next day in an Atlantic City casino hotel room, police said.
A Silver Alert for an unnamed Homestead Run man was called off Aug. 9, said Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy. The 59 year-old white man's name was not released.
On Aug. 8, a search response was activated for the Aviary Way resident, who was last seen Aug. 3 and expected to return home Aug. 5.
Along Route 37 and the Garden State Parkway, emergency alert signs were activated to share the message of the Silver Alert, and the man was believed to be heading north on the parkway, police said at the time.
However, the man was located south of Toms River in an Atlantic City casino's hotel room, Mastronardy said.
The man was found using cell phone records, said the police chief.
He was located with the help of local police, who determined the man needed hospitalization. He was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
