Police: Missing man spotted shopping in Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Just hours after asking for the public's help locating a missing man, Gulfport Police say David Cannaday has been found.


The Pass Christian man had been missing since October 26, when he was last seen leaving the home of a family member on Lynn Avenue in Gulfport. 

Wednesday, Gulfport Police asked WLOX News to put Cannaday's picture and description on air and online with the hope that someone who had seen him recently would call in with a tip. Investigators said a short time later, Cannaday was spotted shopping at a business in Gulfport. 

Police said family members have been notified that their loved one is safe.
