This dramatic drone video shows how police were able to find a lost 75-year-old man.

The Norfolk Police Department in England says local resident Peter Pugh was walking with family on June 16 when he got separated and went missing for 24 hours.

Thankfully the drone was able to spot Peter amongst the dense reed beds.

HM Coastguard and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service then helped get him airlifted to a Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he was treated for hypothermia. 

Thanks to approximately 50 people and a well-piloted drone, Peter and his family are now reunited.
