The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has located a missing 92-year-old man who was last seen at a Chandler casino. 

According to MCSO, Ernest Karkula was at Lone Butte Casino on Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. 

The man's daughter told officials the man never came home after being gone for a while. The woman tracked the man down at the Lone Butte Casino, as he frequents it, and told him he needed to head home in Queen Creek. 

On Wednesday, the woman called officials to say her father never made it home. The casino could not locate the man and his vehicle was gone. 

Officials say the man has a history of getting lost while driving to and from the casino. 

The man was later located on Thursday near Sycamore Creek which is near State Route 87. Deputies did treat the man and he is expected to be okay.
