Police have closed their investigation into Jonathan Gushue's disappearance after locating the Cambridge chef.

According to Waterloo Regional Police, Gushue was located in an undisclosed location outside Ontario.

Gushue's exact location has not been made public. Police say they're no longer concerned for his well-being.

Gushue, 41, was reported missing Jan. 7, nine days after he was last seen by his family and co-workers at Langdon Hall in Cambridge. He was seen in downtown Toronto on Dec. 31, where his cell phone was found at a hotel.

Gushue had disappeared for short periods of time in the past, but never for more than one or two days.

Langdon Hall in Cambridge, where Gushue has worked since 2005, released a brief statement Thursday afternoon.

"We were delighted to hear the news that he has been found and that he is safe," reads the statement.

"We have had no contact with him thus far and consider the matter a family matter at this time."

In 2010, Gushue’s work was credited for landing his employer a prestigious award when Langdon Hall was named one of the world’s top 100 restaurants.
