    I do hope he's is found safe......but I find this story incredible. Not that Noakes has AZ nor that he lives in Spain........but how in the blazes can John Noakes be 81:eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Hope you are home soon, old man.x.

    I hope he's found soon. I have many happy memories of John Noakes, starting with the baby elephant!

    Poor chap, seemingly lost in a country where he doen't speak the language and its the hottest day of the year.

    Lets keep fingers crossed this doesn't end badly.

    nbelievable that he is 81

    Do you know that was my first thought too....he can't possibly be 81. Poor man, dreadful worry for his wife. Hope he is found quickly.

    It is reported that it has been located to the person missing. Is in stable condition and has been taken to the hospital for a recognition general. Thank you very much.

    Makes me 47 too :(

    He was such a big part of my childhood. Mum thought it was a fab programme and so we watched it with her when we were small.

    This piece is reproduced in today's Guardian but for some reason they have omitted hte paragraph about him having Alzheimer's. I am not sure why they have done so

    so glad they found him, but he was in a storm drain. Was that good or bad, at least he was out the heat of the day

    I think it's because his wife did not want anyone to know he had Alzheimers :( ...if this is true then it's a shame she feels she has to hide it away...:(

    You mean the story from the guardian link above? It mentions that he has Alzheimer's disease throughout the story. :confused:

    I think the link to the Guardian was the 30th June saying he had Alzheimer's. The second report was yesterday 1st July and that made no reference to Alzheimers. I think that is what was meant. There is no link to the second report in the Guardian.

    Sorry not to have been clearer. I was trying to say that the story in the printed (rather than online) version of the story omitted to mention Alzheimers
