Early Saturday morning RCMP apprehended Steven MacPhee in a wooded area in Fairview ending a search that began when he left the Hillsborough Hospital last Wednesday.

Queens District RCMP with the assistance of the police dog service located MacPhee in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

RCMP said several tips were received within the last few days that provided “great assistance in the search and safe recovery of MacPhee.”

The public had been advised not to approach him, but police said there was nothing to indicate that the 45-year-old MacPhee was dangerous.

Fairview is on Route 19 near New Dominion.
