81-year-old Cupertino resident found safe

William “Bill” Miller, 81, has been found safe after being reported missing on Oct. 12.

In a Twitter post just before 1 p.m., the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said a tip led to Miller’s discovery. No further information was provided.

Miller’s longtime friend and neighbor reported him missing — concerned that newspapers were piling up at his home on Clifford Drive. He had not been seen around his home since Oct. 5, authorities were told.

The Sheriff’s Office alerted federal, state and local enforcement throughout California to locate Miller.
