MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man who mysteriously disappeared over a week ago has been found safe.

The family contacted WREG to let us know 54-year-old Cecil Dowdy has been found safe.

On Thursday, WREG’s Bridget Chapman reported on his disappearance. His family said Dowdy is a man of his word, so when they didn’t hear from him after he left the house last Monday, they became worried.

His mother, who lives with him, said she thought he was going to withdraw rent money because he had just been paid.

His family said his car was found by the intersection of Bellevue and Keel sitting in the middle of the road, blocking traffic.
