New Castle County police say an elderly Stanton couple that went missing has been found in Pennsylvania. Relatives reported 80-year-old Walter Janusz and his 82-year-old wife, Grace, missing on Tuesday afternoon and told police both have Alzheimer's disease. Police later learned that the couple's credit card was used to buy gas about 7 p.m. Tuesday in Fredericksburg, Va.

Around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, a nurse from the Elkins Park Hospital in Cheltenham, Pa., noticed a vehicle parked outside the hospital and found the couple inside.

The nurse contacted local authorities who in turn contacted the couple's relatives in Delaware. Police say Walter and Grace Janusz appear disoriented, but are generally in good health.

They disappeared once last year and were found only after a minor car accident in northern New Jersey.
