Last night, he had still not returned home, but his loved ones said they will give him time and space after learning police had made contact with him.
Mr Cracknell's partner Angie Craven, 43, said: "We are so relieved he has been found.
"He has so much going on, it is a relief to know he is okay.
"People have been so supportive since he went missing. It was brilliant – all the messages of support were great."
She now wants to thank the army of people who turned out to help search for Jay.
More than 100 people joined the Facebook group.
And friends and family spent time driving around the area to try to locate him.
Angie said: "There was so much help for us.
"So many people looked out for him.
"We would like to thank them."
Jay had been suffering from depression following the death of his mother in January from motor neurone disease.
He left his home in Hessle High Road on foot.
Relieved friends visited the page set up to help find him to leave messages of support.
Joanne Price wrote: "Well Jay what can i say but thank god you are back home, don't ever do this again lol, just really happy you're back with your family xxx."
Nikki Curtis added: "Great to hear Jay has been found safe and well, life can be hard at times, look around Jay your family and friends are here for you you're not alone x."
The Facebook page was set up by Jay's friend Bob Monkman, who also co-ordinated the search.
Since it was set up on Thursday, dozens of people have posted messages of support and offered to help look for Mr Cracknell.
