The two were to meet the other parent around 5 p.m. but never showed up, LCSO detectives said.

According to Vancleave’s wife, her husband has been diagnosed with a cognitive impairment and has gone missing before, but never with his son, authorities said.

On Thursday morning, LCSO detectives were notified by authorities in Jackson County, Ga., and the Georgia Highway Patrol that the father and son were found overnight at an exit off Interstate 85.

Both are believed to be in good physical condition and a relative is heading to Georgia to pick them up, authorities said.
