PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A missing 87-year-old man from Eugene has been found safe in sparsely populated southeast Oregon, and the state police are giving credit to cattle.

According to police, Trooper Tim Thomas spotted the car driven by Warren “Spud” Tucker in Burns on Thursday afternoon. He was able to do so because Highway 20 traffic was stopped because of cattle crossing the road.

Tucker was reported missing early Wednesday by his daughter. Police had information he was in Bend early Thursday, and might be headed south.

Tucker’s relatives were on their way to Burns to reunite with him.
