A non-ambulatory man with dementia who went missing from a Chula Vista assisted-living center last weekend has been found unharmed, authorities reported Thursday.
The man was taken out of the care facility in the 100 block of Third Avenue in a wheelchair — allegedly by an acquaintance — on Saturday, according to the Chula Vista Police Department.
Detectives located him and determined that he was "safe and receiving proper services," CVPD Sgt. Anthony Molina said.
Police declined to release further information about the case, including where the man was found, who was caring for him during his absence from the care center and whether he would be returned to the facility.
