Clement Gascon, a justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, has been found after the Ottawa Police Service reported him missing on Wednesday.
The police said the 59-year-old justice had last been seen in the 300-block of Wellington Street, heading southwest at around 1:20 p.m.
Gascon had been described by police as a Caucasian male, six feet tall with short, medium hair and a beard.
The justice wears glasses and he was wearing a black business suit at his last sighting before police confirmed he had been located.
The Supreme Court of Canada announced last month that Gascon would retire after having spent five years on Canada’s highest court.
He’s leaving the bench for personal and family reasons, the court said at the time.
The justice was appointed to the Quebec Superior Court in 2002 before he joined the Quebec Court of Appeal a decade later.
Gascon became a Supreme Court justice in June 2014.
