AN 84-year-old man with dementia who sparked a police alert when he failed to return to his Plaistow home from a shopping trip last Wednesday has been found alive and well, Scotland Yard said today.

In the bitter cold, Leslie White was wearing multi-coloured slippers rather than shoes on his feet when he left home in Pragel Street at lunchtime.
