A Raglan man who was reported missing last night has turned up at home safe and well.

Police are now on their way to the home of 87-year-old James Rees Whitney to find out where he went and why.

Whitney, a diabetic, was last seen just after 9am yesterday morning when he left his Wallis St home to head into town.

He didn't return home, where he was due to meet his nurse for a regular appointment at 4pm.

Police and search and rescue teams searched for him overnight without success, however Raglan police confirmed he had turned up at home this morning.
