A man was reunited with his wife in the nick of time on Sunday afternoon after losing sight of her during a brief cruise stop in Malaga.

The woman, who has Alzheimer's, went missing during a visit to the Alcazaba, an hour before their cruise was due to leave port.

Panicking, the man, from Brazil, was able to track her down to the Alameda with the help of taxi drivers to whom he described her physical attributes and what she was wearing.

Communicating by radio, the message was spread and when she was identified, she was picked up and reunited with her husband.

The emotional reunion was captured on video.
