Toronto police have found one of the two elderly men who went missing in Rexdale earlier this week.

Leonard Simpson, 98, was found in good health on Thursday afternoon.

Police say he was taken to hospital as a precaution, and they’re waiting to hear from medical examiners.

He was found by a drone walking down Kipling Avenue.

Officers have been searching local parks on ATVs, horseback, and by using drones after escalating the search for Simpson and another man to the highest level Thursday morning.

The other man, Chandulal Gandhi, 83, was last seen on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the Kipling Avenue and Steeles Avenue West area.

He is described as five foot seven inches with a slim build, white hair, and a white beard.

He was last seen wearing grey dress pants, a black jacket, and a blue baseball cap.

Police say the following video shows what he is believed to have been wearing when he went missing.

Toronto Police Superintendent Ron Taverner says there is no evidence yet his disappearance is related to the recent stabbing deaths of two other men in Rexdale.
