CAPE TOWN - An elderly man who went missing while hiking in the Drakenstein mountains in the Cape, has been found alive.

When Basil Moore failed to return home on Wednesday, his family alerted authorities.

The 80-year-old, who is living with Alzheimer's, was found by rescue teams earlier today.

Western Cape emergency service's Robert Daniels says, "The hiker had his two dogs with him and they barked every time a rescuer called their names this morning.

"The man is dehydrated, tired and had various scratches and bruises. He cannot remember anything either. But he is unharmed and was taken to the Stellenbosch Medi Clinic."
