An elderly Yreka man who got on a bus Thursday and didn't come home was found Saturday at a campground near Crescent City, police say.

Darwin Lee Ehrlich, 75, told police he had gone to look for a cooler place to live, said Susan Gravenkamp, a spokeswoman for the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department.

Ehrlich left his home at Cove Mobile Villa south of Yreka Thursday morning, telling his wife he planned to take the Stage, a local commuter bus, into Yreka to go shopping, Gravenkamp said.

He took the bus to Yreka, but then continued into Weed, where he got onto a Greyhound bus and traveled to Crescent City, she said.
