FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) -- A Fort Knox soldier reported missing after visiting his parents in Florida has been located in Las Vegas.

Manatee, Fla., County Sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow says authorities found Pfc. Daniel Dezinno on Friday -- more than a week after his parents reported him missing from their Sarasota, Fla., home.

Dezinno's family reported him missing Oct. 24 after the 30-year-old failed to return to Fort Knox in central Kentucky after visiting them on Florida's west coast.

Both the Florida Highway Patrol and Georgia Highway Patrol were alerted about Dezinno.

Bristow says no foul play was suspected in the disappearance and the Army has been notified of Dezinno's whereabouts.
