An international traveler reported missing was found Friday morning after apparently missed a connecting flight at O’Hare Airport a week ago.

Thomas Richardson, 69, was traveling from London to California, but never made his connecting flight on Oct. 11, Area North detectives said in an alert earlier this week.

Police News Affairs John Mirabelli said Richardson was found uninjured and appeared to be in good health. He had been staying at a hotel near the airport.

A family member was contacted to pick him up, Mirabelli said.
