Gavin McGuire was due to be reunited with his wife, Josephine, late last night after a major police search spanning several counties.
She had left their home in Holton, near Halesworth, on Sunday, to pick up her mother, Doris Slatter, 88, from a hospital in Great Yarmouth.
The pair had been expected to return to Suffolk later that day and Mr McGuire called the police after they failed to turn up.

Mr McGuire, a teacher, said: "It is really great news that both my wife and mother-in-law are safe and well.
"It is such a relief and we just want to spend time together as a family to sort things out."
It is believed Mrs McGuire, 53, a teacher at a Lowestoft middle school who had been suffering from depression, had taken Mrs Slatter, who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease, on a "tour".
