Update: 28-year-old man who went missing is found

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said early today that a 28-year-old man who walked away from his residence in Arden Arcade on Thursday afternoon has been found.

Sheriff's officials said Joshua Carroll was considered at risk because of his medical condition. He had been in a catatonic state since May and is prone to seizures, which may have precipitated his condition.

He is reported to be unsteady on his feet and has difficulty speaking but is able to understand when someone speaks to him.

Overnight, firefighters responded to the 2800 block of Northgate Boulevard in the Northgate neighborhood where a man was on the ground. He was taken to UC Davis Medical Center where deputies later arrived and confirmed it was Carroll.

He was reportedly in a catatonic state, but otherwise unharmed. Carroll's mother was told that he had been found.
