After a tearful press conference early in the week, many feared the worst for Billy Hurley and his father, as the elder Hurley went missing nearly two weeks ago. Thankfully, he was found recently according to the Leesburg, Virginia police.

Willard (Bill) Hurley was located safe and sound this afternoon in Texas after a citizen recognized him from earlier media releases. The citizen contacted the local police department who responded to confirm his identity.

Mr. Hurley left his residence in Leesburg on Sunday July 19, 2015 and was reported as missing by his family on Monday July 27, 2015. Mr. Hurley stated to our Detective that he is fine physically and is simply travelling.

Mr. Hurley did not wish to reveal the reasons behind his departure.

Apparently, he was in a library

So that's a little bit strange considering how worried his son was at the beginning of this week. It seems like the elder Hurley is peaceful and doing fine.

Maybe we should get the Leesburg, Virginia PD on the Anthony Kim trail next.
