A Tasmanian man is being treated for exposure and superficial injuries suffered after he went missing from a nursing home and spent the night in bushland.

Police on Saturday launched a large-scale search for Geoffrey Cecil Best, 68, who hadn't been seen for more than 24 hours after going for his daily walk from Karingal Nursing Home.

The crew, including SES volunteers, found Mr Best in scrub behind Devonport Soccer Club.

"There are established tracks in the area however Mr Best was not located on one of these," Sergeant Luke Bishop said, confirming fears the missing man had become disoriented while walking.
