    The search for a man missing from DFW Airport is over.  Sam Reno was found in Corsicana about 9pm Thursday night. Officers with the Department of Public Safety at DFW International Airport spent most of the day looking for Reno. 

    According to a news release from airport spokesman David Magana, Reno arrived at DFW Airport on Thursday afternoon at just after 1pm. on American Eagle flight 2805 from Roswell, New Mexico.
     
    The flight arrived at Terminal D and Reno was last seen on surveillance cameras at Terminal D.  Family members said he suffers from Alzheimer's disease and were waiting at the airport to meet him.

     Late Thursday night he was discovered in Corsicana. Magana said Reno was tracked through several credit card transactions and had made contact with a couple who were giving him a ride home.

    Reno is from Palestine, Tex., earlier in the day his family said Reno is strong-willed and may try and find his own way back home.
     
    This isn't the first time officers have looked for a missing person at the airport. In 2001, Margie Dabney disappeared in much the same way when she was on a layover at DFW and on her way to Los Angeles. Dabney also suffered from Alzheimer's and her remains were actually found near Lewisville Lake in 2008.
