A missing elderly man has been spotted in Upshur County after never arriving at his girlfriend's house in Tyler, according to Police.
Sunday, Tyler Police received information that Willie Hubert Wingfield was spotted near the town of Big Sandy, driving a green 2000 Dodge Intrepid.
Wingfield was reported missing on February 1, leaving from Dallas to visit his girlfriend. A statewide Silver Alert was issued in hopes of finding him.
