Comedian Mort Sahl 'found'

Sahl, who lives in Claremont, was reported missing by his wife on Friday, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune blogged this morning. An afternoon update says that Sahl, who turns 82 next week, was located by detectives. Which is not to say the mystery is over:

"He's where he wants to be voluntarily," Claremont Police Lt. Paul Davenport said.

Sahl's wife told police Friday she hadn't seen her husband since Tuesday May 6. They began a manhunt that included several interviews with Sahl's associates.
