Authorities on Long Island have located an elderly couple missing since Thursday night.

John and Marian Rogan, who live at the Bristal of Massapequa, signed out at 6:10 Thursday night to go out for the evening in their own car.

"Residents who are capable, are free to come and go as they please," said Richard Youngberg, Executive Director of the Bristal Assisted Living Community in Massapequa. "We expected them to return at about 9PM, when they did not return Bristal staff notified the Nassau County Police."

John Rogan is 85. Marian Rogan is 86. They moved to Long Island eight months ago from upstate Westport, NY.

They were located in Westchester County on Friday night.

The couple is fine, authorities said.

Nassau County police did not immediately know if they had gotten lost or if they were headed somewhere.
