Police have located an 80-year-old prospector who failed to return to Coolgardie yesterday.
Ralph Gordon Craig was reported missing at 2pm by a friend he had been prospecting with.
Police spokesperson Dom Wood said Mr Craig walked out on to the Jurdi Hills road, where he was spotted by the local who made contact with him and directed police and SES to his location.
"As a precaution he is being airlifted by the Police Helicopter to Kalgoorlie Airport, where he will be met by SJA and taken for a check up at Kalgoorlie Hospital," Inspector Wood said.
Mr Craig is in a good condition and his family has been informed.
